Company's Enterprise Risk Management runs across it's both 'risk identification and mitigation' and 'exploitation of opportunity'. Cross functional teams work with marketing and public relation groups to proactively mitigate and manage reputational risks. The leading companies have three layers for defence of risk management: risk self-assessment, internal corporate audit and audit by third party auditors. In the present competitive environment no market leader can afford to have any tolerance to risks relating to compliances and frauds. Operational companies that are involved in project execution very often map the risks with risk drivers for all projects on a continuous basis. Board is expected to encourage positive thinking that the approach to risk management does not result in optimism that either leads to significant risks or exposes the companies to excessive risks.

CSR is taking deeper roots and companies are contributing a great deal, in a number of cases more than the mandatory 2% profit of previous year.

By broadening the scope of activities under Schedule VII the government has facilitated the corporate world to become a partner in government's programme.

Building capacity within the accountancy community to support India's Smart Cities Mission - A Research and Knowledge paper

During the last two decades CSR has evolved from a simple philanthropic activity to integrating business interests with the community in which it operates, exhibiting social, environmental and ethically 'responsible behavior in governess of business, generating values and long term sustainability'. Most companies have long practiced some form of corporate social and environmental responsibility with the broad goal simply of contributing to the well-being of the communities and society they affect, and on which they depend. But there is increasing pressure to dress up CSR as a business discipline, and demand that every initiative deliver business results. The corporations of today are no longer sheer economic entities, but engines of social transformation. The greatest challenge for directors is to value diversity, remove disparities, and manage discontinuation.

The boards are central to the governance of companies, and their basic governance responsibilities remain more or less the same across the world. As trustees of the shareholders, the boards play a key role in providing direction to the companies in terms of approving the strategy, maintain their integrity, enhancing their performance, and ensuring that the companies operate in the best interests of the shareholders and other stakeholders. Given the complexity of today's corporate structures and rapid changes that are occurring in the economy and the market, this is no mean task. Adding to these complexities are the heightened expectations of the shareholders and the enhanced regulatory requirements that demand more accountability and transparency- all of which are creating new challenges for the boards.
