The increasing responsiveness of the market to climate issues places a spotlight on ESG risks and their impacts on business growth trajectories accompanied by increased risk exposure levels that need to be managed timely. Against this backdrop, what role does the internal audit function play? In this talk, Cherine Fok, Director of Sustainability Services (KPMG IMPACT), will provide a high-level overview of the changing ESG landscape including their implications for internal auditors and some important questions to be asked. By adopting an ESG lens and assessing the associated risks in the ESG framework, internal auditors will be able to effectively manage an organization’s overall risk exposure.
