Risk Management In The Context Of Sustainable Development
The objective of the present paper is to present the singularities of risk management in the context of the new requirements and strategies adopted by the European Union in order to ensure sustainable development at organizational level. The paper wishes to approach the complex problem of risk management, given the premise that risk needs to be tackled as a conscious and calculated assumption of reality. The motivation for this research originates from the necessity of having a holistic approach for the risk management process, which will allow risk analysis and evaluation at a strategic, operational, financial, environmental and social level. This integrating approach, the continuous and systematic analysis and evaluation of all risks will constitute a real fundament for the sustainable development of all organizations, generating an efficient management system for all possible risks and opportunities resulting from these risks. The present research is based on the analysis of specialized literature, identifying the characteristics of the risk management process at conceptual level, in order to ensure the organizationÃ¢â‚¬â"¢s sustainable development, the managersÃ¢â‚¬â"¢ perception regarding the importance of this process and the necessity for integration in the leading structures of the organization. The adopted research methodology is based on activities specific for descriptive research. Modern management needs to be risk-sensitive, to follow the implementation and utilization of reliable and efficient systems, to elaborate action plans and security schemes which include ranking the objectives on operational levels, adaptable to the permanent changes. An efficient management system does not limit itself to a Ã¢â‚¬Å¡short time horizonÃ¢â‚¬â"¢, also but considers further perspectives. In these situations, proactive management turns into prospective management, its purpose being to identify the risks that might arise as a consequence of strategy or environment modifications. TodayÃ¢â‚¬â"¢s organizations need to fully absorb the concept of sustainable development and risk management into their strategy, not only to minimize potential losses but also to exploit new business opportunities which result from the principles of sustainable economic development.
