Risk and Opportunity Inc.: Managing Risks As Profitable Opportunities

Co-authored by our colleagues and leaders in social innovation and impact investing, Amit Sharma and Steve Bachar, Risk and Opportunity Inc., provides a compelling new framework for transforming sustainability risks into profitable business opportunities in the corporate sector. The publication recommends three strategic principles: (1) widening the risk management aperture, (2) engaging the entire enterprise and (3) focusing on total returns. The publication also presents the ‘Risk and Opportunity’ framework, which enables companies across multiple sectors to respond strategically to sustainability risks, develop new products and markets, and create revenue-generating opportunities. Risk and Opportunity Inc. was launched at the 2016 Mission Investors Exchange Annual Conference in Baltimore, MD.
