Tata Steel bagged awards for ‘Best Risk Management Framework & Systems’ in two categories, namely Risk Governance and Metals & Mining at the 4th India Risk Management Awards 2018 held today in Mumbai. Mr. Koushik Chatterjee, ED & CFO, Tata Steel, received the award on behalf of the organisation from Dr. Nouriel Roubini,Professor of Economics, NYUs Stern School of Business and Chairman & Co-founder, Roubini Global Economics. This is an important landmark in the journey of Tata Steel’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), and closely aligned to the organisation's efforts towards becoming a risk-intelligent organisation.

As a global entity, Tata Steel is exposed to risks as well as opportunities in equal measure. Recognising this, the Company has a robust Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) framework that allows the organisation to undertake certain risks in order to be competitive and to mitigate other risks to drive sustainable results. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, stakeholder values are protected at all times. Tata Steel adopted the Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) formally in 2013, with an aim to become risk-intelligent organisation that supports informed decision-making and proactively prepares itself to handle unforeseen scenarios, which could possibly impact the business. The process has evolved over the years with the development of detailed process framework, associated guidelines and constitution of robust governance structures & mechanisms.

The ERM framework was developed in-house by incorporating inputs from benchmark industry practices, International standards & references (including COSO & ISO 31000), leadership direction and feedback from key stakeholders. A dedicated ERM team was set-up to facilitate the deployment of processes across the Company ensuring the uniformity & integrity of the process. The ERM framework has been customised to meet the organisation’s requirement and has been deployed successfully across business units in India.

The India Risk Management Awards recognises companies that have significantly added to the understanding and practice of Risk Management and have created best-in-class risk management practices and capabilities across business categories.
