The International Risk Governance Council (IRGC) is an independent non-profit foundation which aims to help improve the understanding and management of risks and opportunities by providing insight into systemic risks that have impacts on human health and safety, on the environment, on the economy and on society at large.

As a science-based think tank and neutral collaborative platform with multidisciplinary expertise, IRGC’s mission includes developing concepts of risk governance, anticipating major risk issues, and providing risk governance policy advice for key decision-makers.

Drawing upon international scientific knowledge form both the public and private sector, IRGC champions ignored, neglected and emerging issues and can help building bridges between science and policy in today’s challenging governance environment.

In this section, you can learn more about IRGC’s Mission & Purpose, about how we strategically approach work on risk governance, about our history, how IRGC is governed and organised as well as how we operate financially.

Should you have questions or would like to obtain further information about IRGC-related topics, please do not hesitate to contact us.
