[On-Demand Webinar] Compliance and Sustainability part II
Value creating third-party risk programmes 

Following a survey of 1,800 global third-party risk professionals, we have recorded a two-part webinar series to review the findings – focusing on the relationship between compliance and sustainability, and the impact on third-party risk programmes. 

In the first webinar we explored the reasons to review third-party risk programmes.

In the second webinar we discussed practical aspects of how to turn third-party risk programmes into centres of value creation
  • What are the expectations of investors in terms of the supply chain and third part risk networks? 
  • How can we efficiently incorporate ESG concerns into third-party risk programmes?
  • How can we introduce automation in workflows and research given the growing complexity of supply chain networks?
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at EMEA.Marketing@Refinitiv.com.
