Notably, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate, the primary component in Roundup, as “probably carcinogenic to humans,” placing it firmly in Group 2A.

Risk Framework

Insights on emerging risks are great but taking
action on them is even better.

Let’s move your business from insights to action.

Our Emerging Risk Framework breaks emerging risk into three phases: emerging interest, emerging damage and emerging litigation. Depending on the phase of emergence, our methodology recommends specific business actions to take and who should take them.  Because our framework is embedded in Praedicat software – with access to tools like the litigation tracker, company risk score, and library of realistic disaster scenarios – understanding the information is intuitive and taking action is easier than ever.
