What is Environmental Risk Management?

Risk Management is defined as “the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.”

     Environmental Risk Management is the application of managing environmental and other related risks such as tort liability, speculative risk, transactional, or financial risk, married with a strategy to help mitigate short and long term liabilities generally associated with business activities and opportunities.
