C2 Risk at #RISK Digital: A Glimpse into ESG in Procurement

Earlier this month, we were thrilled to take part in #RISK Digital which occurred on the 19th and 20th of September 2023 and was hosted by GRC World Forums. #RISK Digital was a livestream event that examined the changing risk landscape in a content rich, knowledge sharing environment. 

The past few years have witnessed seismic shifts in remote work technology, privacy, security, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance), and consumer attitudes toward diversity, inclusion, and trust. Risk management can no longer be solely compliance-driven and reactive. Every organisation now confronts risks spanning market dynamics, economic factors, technology advancements, social issues, criminal activities, and security concerns.

As proud sponsors and exhibitors at both of this year’s Risk events – #Risk Digital and #Risk London, scheduled for October 18th and 19th at ExCeL London – we are excited about our active participation, including sponsorship and speaking opportunities.

Jonathan Wood joined other experts in the field in a discussion on the topic of “ESG in Procurement; Strategies for Sourcing Sustainable and Ethical Suppliers.” Jonathan, like the rest of us here at C2, is on a mission to make it simpler and safer for businesses to thrive and survive in this digital world. 

Jonathan was joined by: 

  • Tina Verma – Head of Risk & Compliance at Crayon Group 
  • Asif Din – Director of Regenerative Design at Perkins&Will 
  • Juliana Oliveira Nascimento – Risk Advisory Manager at KPMG & Co-founder Compliance Women Committee

ESG sits at the top of any board’s agenda and plays a key pivotal role in procurement today. During the discussion, Jonathan and his colleagues delved into how businesses can identify areas for enhancement within their ESG frameworks concerning procurement. They also addressed methods to ensure compliance across the supply chain regarding ESG in procurement, strategies for assessing and establishing ESG ratings throughout the supply chain, and the selection of appropriate techniques and tools. This enlightening discussion covered much more.

But don’t worry if you missed it, there’s a sneaky recording for you to catch up on here. Additionally, you can also catch up on the other discussions from the event here.
