Risk Mitigation and Management Strategies
Importantly, in addition to identifying and assessing operational risks, we also develop and recommend strategies to assist clients in mitigating risks or managing them, if they have already manifested. These include:
Integrated management systems that incorporate environmental, corporate social responsibility, health and safety, and security components that are “fit for purpose.”
Assimilation of the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
