The current economic climate highlights the importance of sustainability in supply chains to ensure business continuity and resilience; at the same time, there is an increase in sustainability-related legislative developments and a growing demand by customers for more sustainable goods and services. Companies, therefore, look to re-evaluate their approach, policies, processes, and strategies on sustainability.

The Harvard case study that has been chosen for this year’s session’s debate, development, and presentation to the Board of Directors, focuses precisely on the importance of analyzing the aspects of sustainability in the company’s supply chain (analyzed in terms of ERM).

This advanced Rimap workshop is a virtual learning and interactive event. It will sharpen your strategic risk management skills and knowledge. It will boost your risk and insurance communication expertise to make your conversation with the top management relevant and impactful.

Who can participate?   
This advanced workshop is open to Rimap alumni and all risk professionals with a minimum of 3 years of professional. It will be limited to 20 participants to promote the interchange of experience among multisectoral and multicultural professionals.
