Summary "Triple Bottom Line Risk Management introduces the RISQUE method (Risk Identification and Strategy Using Quantitative Evaluation), which can be used to assess and quantify business risks in a way that can be proactively addressed in a company's business management strategy. It incorporates a quantitative risk assessment process that translates intangible environmental and social risks into financial measures that can be used to develop risk treatment strategies. With this method, you'll be able to make informed, defensible, risk management decisions."--BOOK JACKET
