A ‘risk’ is the threat that any event or action will impede or adversely affect any firm’s ability to achieve it's objectives or to successfully execute it’s strategies.


These risks may manifest themselves in a wide variety of ways and from both internal and external sources.


Typically, risks can be  grouped into related categories and will include interrelated ‘sub risks’. A common articulation is shown here.


Sustainability is no different. In each engagement, we work from the 'Top Down' as well as the 'Bottom Up' to ensure that all potential risks, hazards and issues are identified, assessed and prioritised. We do this in 4 Dimensions.
