The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Risks Report 2018 has been issued, identifying four of the top five risks being related to societal or environmental issues, namely extreme weather events, water crises, natural disasters and failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The Report is a useful guide for all organizations, as these issues should be taken into consideration in any organization’s Materiality Analysis, in order to address the wider global sustainability context, on which we all have an impact on.

The 2018 Report also presents the results of a Global Risks Perception Survey, in which nearly 1,000 experts and decision-makers assess the likelihood and impact of 30 global risks over a 10-year horizon.
