“Energy companies of virtually all types rely heavily on outsourcing partners for goods and services,” notes Michael Saracini, CEO of Aravo. “Aravo helps them understand and mitigate the potential compliance, reputation, cyber, and environmental risks associated with those third parties. We’re delighted to partner with The Alliance Risk Group to provide this critical market segment with even more robust solutions for ensuring responsible and ethical delivery of their products and services.”
