Technology takes on a world of intensified risk
Businesses have always faced risks, but in today’s more complex world they are increasingly assailed by them – not just traditional risks like economic fluctuations, wars, and labour unrest, but also novel ones for which organisations are often inadequately prepared. Natural risks, such as floods and earthquakes, pale in comparison to the systemic risk to the entire global ecosystem posed by the climate crisis, while the worst pandemic in a century has seen supply chains broken and entire economies effectively shut down for weeks on end.
Compounding this unprecedented onslaught of challenges are rising demands from consumers, investors and regulators to adhere to ever stricter standards of ethical behaviour and reporting in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) sphere. While these demands are intended to mitigate risks, inadvertent failure to respond can become another risk factor.
Speeki is a combination of an AI-driven software platform and smart supporting services which together redefine risk management – enhancing business resilience and boosting competitive advantage. The Speeki system is designed to help companies predict and mitigate risks in the ESG arena in order to fulfil their environmental, social and governance obligations more effectively and with less effort. At the core of Speeki’s methodology is a three-stage process.
