Risk in Energy and Resources

The Energy and Resources industry is facing a wide range of complex challenges and increased shareholder, management and market scrutiny from digital disruption, increased regulations, business model diversification, productivity and financing challenges and sustainability imperatives.

There are a growing number of risks that could result from these challenges, potentially affecting multiple facets of an organisation.

In this environment, boards and shareholders would seek assurances that appropriate corporate governance is in place to address the multiple risks that could result from these challenges.

At the same time, they would seek assurances that other pressing issues and associated risks are factored into strategic planning, such as compliance requirements, geopolitical issues, an increased focus on health and safety, performance improvement, adoption of new technology and related security and continuity concerns.

Deloitte’s Energy and Resources risk specialists can work with our clients to help them realise the worth of an intelligent risk strategy, to protect and create value.
