We believe Active Risk Manager helps take the complexity out of the risk process

Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK. August 16, 2012 - Active Risk announced today that Transpacific Industries Group Ltd (Transpacific), Australia and New Zealand’s leading recycling, waste management and industrial services company, has selected its award-winning software Active Risk Manager (ARM) for enterprise risk management across the organization to replace the original spreadsheet driven risk process.

Karl Davey, Chief Risk Officer at Transpacific Industries Group Ltd commented, “We wanted a solution that would enable managers and workers at a local, regional, divisional and corporate level to contribute and gain value from the risk management process. The system selected had to seamlessly integrate into the Transpacific culture and support our vision of efficient, value adding risk management. We also needed a solution to support our full governance, risk, assurance and compliance (GRC) activities from risk management, audit through to business continuity. Only ARM met these requirements.”

The Active Risk approach to enterprise risk management covers four key areas: operational risk management; business and strategic risk management; governance and compliance and opportunity management. Transpacific will ultimately use Active Risk Manager in all four functional areas and across its entire operations. The use of Active Risk Manager will also be extended to support business resilience activities through Transpacific’s risk based business continuity management approach.

Karl Davey continued, “We believe Active Risk Manager helps take the complexity out of the risk process. It provides concise yet powerful data entry, can collect risk information from anywhere within an organization and has proven scalability and reliability. ARM will be used enterprise-wide supporting all facets of our business.”

Loren Padelford, Executive Vice President and General Manager at Active Risk commented, “We are pleased that ARM was judged as the best system to deliver on Transpacific’s commendable corporate goals. Active Risk Manager simplifies the risk process while providing powerful information for strategic decision making. Transpacific’s aim to use knowledge from its risk management process to supercharge business performance, shows its progressive thinking and is evidence of the trend we see around the world for organizations to drive more business value from Enterprise Risk Management.”

ARM customers include Leighton Contractors, US Air Force, London Underground, Rio Tinto and EADS.
