Administrative-organisational challenges in using uncertain climate science by following an adaptive management approach?
Interconnectedness with institutional context?
The disposal of the Brent-Spar and the raising awareness about reputational risks
Shift from government to governance: risk managing organisations need to act in an institutional environment that is shaped by the demands and expectations of a plurality of actors
Pressure to be more open and responsive to external voices than previously science-based risk management thinking
Stakeholder can become a managerial dread factor and an explicitly recognised source of risk for organisations responsible for risk management
Organisations are therefore increasingly engaged with managing second order reputational risks and this potentially at the expense of first order risks
