About this talk

Small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 90% of the business population in developed countries, according to the World Trade Organisation. As governments and consumers increase pressure on businesses to reduce their carbon footprints, SMEs are struggling to keep up. While many business leaders are convinced by the need to green their businesses, for many, the complex nature of ESG makes it hard to know where to start. Which is why, in Episode 13 of The ESG Innovation Hub, we’re inviting leaders from across the ESG space to share practical strategies that SME leaders can implement to drive sustainable transformation in their businesses. Topics for discussion include: - Understand the drivers behind the ESG movement and how they impact SMEs - Costs, risks and benefits of integrating ESG into the SME business plan - Blockers to sustainable transformation and how to overcome them - How to get started with sustainable transformation - Partnership best practices: how to think about collaboration and source sustainable partnership opportunities - How to develop a culture of sustainable change across the company - And more… Speakers: Luiz Gabriel Todt de Azevedo, ESG Division Chief at IDB Invest Marie-Josée Privyk, Chief ESG Innovation Officer at Novisto Reinhilde Weidacher, Global Head of ESG Data Strategy at ISS ESG ESG Innovation Hub is hosted by Georgina Mitchell, Consultant, WellHouse Consulting
