The Institute of Enterprise Risk Practitioners (IERP®) is the world’s first and leading certification institute for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM).

Sustainability Risk Manager (SRM™)

We are in the midst of the most severe series of challenges the world has experienced since World War Two. Leaders in every sector – government, business, civil society – are at a defining crossroads. We must mobilize all constituencies of society to work together and seize this historic opportunity to rebalance our world for the benefit of all.

Sustainability Risk Manager (SRM™)

The emerging consensus among companies that long-term value is most effectively created by serving the interests of all stakeholders as the interrelation of economic, environmental and social factors is increasingly material to long‑term enterprise value creation. Investors and stakeholders now expect companies to manage and report on non‑financial issues, risks and opportunities – with the same discipline and rigour as financial information – including relevant ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) metrics.

Via these sustainability frameworks and reporting – and integrating them into governance, business strategy and performance management – a company demonstrates to its shareholders and stakeholders that it diligently weighs all pertinent risks and opportunities in running its business. Additionally, those corporations that align their goals to the long‑term goals of society, as articulated in the SDGs, are the most likely to create long‑term sustainable value, while driving positive outcomes for business, the economy, society and the planet. This is the true definition and intent of stakeholder capitalism and ESG and is encapsulated in the scope of our Sustainability Risk Manager (SRM™) certification program.

Certification Modules

Managing ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Risks

(5 February 2024)

  • This module has been designed to provide practitioners with a proper practical overview of ESG and the SDGs. Many still view ESG, as a narrow, noncore activity that primarily focuses on philanthropy through corporate giving and volunteering. However, ESG encompasses business practices far beyond the concept of corporate social responsibility, under whose umbrella those charitable activities traditionally fall.
  • Participants will be grounded with a practical understanding that whether companies are subject to ESG related regulations or otherwise, there is an expectation on the part of investors and regulators for Corporations to address ESG impacts and to incorporate this broader perspective into their strategy and decisions. In practice, therefore, Corporations should expand their remit and start to delve into the various ESG aspects relevant to their entities. Core to all of this is an understanding of the Risk Management implications and its relationship relative to ERM.

Mechanics of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance)

(6-7 February 2024)
  • The context in which businesses now operate has been transformed by climate change, nature loss, social unrest around inclusion and working conditions, Covid-19 and changing expectations of the role of corporations. The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of our global systems. It has exacerbated underlying and longstanding failures regarding equality access to economic opportunities and is unfolding at the same time as a mounting climate crisis.
  • To continue to thrive, companies need to build their resilience and enhance their licence to operate, through greater commitment to long‑term, sustainable value creation that embraces the wider demands of people and planet.

Enterprise Risk Management

(8 February 2024)
  • Anyone involved in ESG must have a sound practical grounding in the theories and practices of ERM – and its linkages to other relevant and associated disciplines and standards linked to ESG. When implemented and utilised properly, ERM and ESG can become a driver for Commercial Sustainability as well as Organisational Agility and Resilience. This program coaches participants in how to achieve all of this. The module explains and re-emphasises the fundamentals of ERM, how an ESG frameworks sits with an ERM framework, and shows how it can be utilised to drive strategy, performance, and the linkages to corporate governance, internal controls and drive long term value creation. Participants will also be taught how to apply strategic risk management concepts to enhance decision making processes and to add value to the business.
