Comunicato Stampa – Alessandro Carretta nuovo Presidente di Nedcommunity

“Care Associate, Cari Associati,

Ho accettato con grande piacere la proposta del Consiglio direttivo di Nedcommunity di ricoprire la carica di Presidente, in sostituzione di Maria Pierdicchi, che dopo aver dato alla guida dell’associazione un forte impulso alle nostre attività, concretizzatosi fra l’altro nel piano strategico presentato all’ultima Assemblea, rimane in Consiglio direttivo per dedicarsi in particolare alle relazioni internazionali.

Di fronte abbiamo uno scenario sfidante per la buona governance, che rappresenta  per tutti noi, soci,  staff dell’associazione, membri dei numerosi gruppi di lavoro, commissioni e comitati, componenti del Consiglio direttivo, corporate partners, un punto di riferimento essenziale.

Conto di valorizzare il prezioso patrimonio costituito dalle persone e istituzioni che fanno parte della nostra comunità e credono nel ruolo che Nedcommunity può svolgere.

Farò del mio meglio!

Ringraziando per la fiducia, porgo un caro saluto e auguri di buone feste.”

Alessandro

ESG embedding: are you ready? A call for Boards, Risk Managers and Internal Auditors

Corporate Sustainability: Risk Managers and Internal Auditors must work closer with Boards of Directors
Boards of Directors need to work closer with Risk Managers and Internal Auditors to meet the sustainability challenges facing corporations. Otherwise, there is an increased risk of not meeting legal obligations and market expectations.
 
“Risk Managers and Internal Auditors are needed for their expertise when it comes to anticipating the effect of double materiality. The two professions can also help the Board in the dialogue with relevant stakeholders. Companies should first assess their level of maturity in terms of overall approach to sustainability”, highlighted Béatrice Richez-Baum, Director General, ecoDa.
 
EFRAG has just delivered the first set of draft standards for European sustainability reporting (ESRS) to the European Commission. The standards underline the urgency for European corporations to meet the sustainability challenge. At board level, more in-depth knowledge of sustainability issues in business operations becomes imperative.
 
“As a prerequisite, risk management and internal audit must support the Board and senior management so that strategy, risk management, policies, governance and culture fulfill the requirements and expectations. In turn, the Board and the C-Suite must give internal audit and risk management the means to do this”, added Pascale Vandenbussche, Secretary General, ECIIA.
 
While new developments regarding enhanced European legislation on corporate sustainability (including EFRAG’s ESRS standards) are emerging, ecoDa representing board members, FERMA representing risk managers and ECIIA for internal auditors describe in a joint paper, why cooperation between the three roles is needed.
 
“A corporate culture that embraces enterprise-wide risk management is a fundamental factor in determining how organisations approach and deal with sustainability. Managing sustainability requires a mature risk management function and processes. And, with our maturity matrix in the paper we guide organisations to gain a better sense of their sustainability journey”, Typhaine Beaupérin, FERMA CEO.
 
Embedding sustainability into business operations requires Boards of Directors, Risk Managers and Internal Auditors to cooperate. A clear understanding between the Risk Management and Internal Audit functions must be developed to support the Board, and deliver on sustainability objectives.
