This 2020 edition is the opportunity to deepen four challenges that the Risk Manager is facing today:

  • his growing role in digital transformation
  • his contribution to sustainability
  • tougher insurance market conditions
  • education and skills evolution
The objective of this report is to launch the discussion on the new challenges posed by the European transition to climate neutrality and digital leadership for Risk Managers. How are the roles and responsibilities of European Risk Managers evolving in the face of this new reality? Are Risk Managers equipped to support their organizations in achieving this double transformation?
