Capturing Intangible Risks of Global Trends

Global Webinar

In an ever-changing world – environmentally, socially and economically – the way in which companies identify and understand the context in which they operate, and can thrive, is essential.

In 2018 we began a webinar series with Novartis to showcase and discuss how to manage the impact of a company on society and the environment at large through the lens of a materiality assessment.

In our next webinar with Novartis on September 11, we will explore how companies can analyse the impacts of global changes on a company. We are delighted to welcome C. Adam Schlosser, Senior Research Scientist from MIT Center for Global Change Science to speak about their collaboration with Novartis, which aims to assess climate risks and operational exposure. Together, Novartis and MIT are trying to better understand in what form and how likely impacts of global trends such as climate change can materialize in both the short- and long-term.

Join us for a rich conversation on how a major company is using its materiality assessment as a management tool and responding to global trends.
