The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Risks Report 2019 has been issued, identifying four of the top five risks being related to societal or environmental issues, namely failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation, extreme weather events, water crises and natural disasters.

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 2019 Report also presents the results of a Global Risks Perception Survey, in which over 900 experts and decision-makers assess the likelihood and impact of 30 global risks over a 10-year horizon.
