ESG won’t be a global imperative if it is merely a developed world construct. Emerging markets need to be engaged, but the ‘how’ is not simple. Investors are under pressure to reduce ESG risks, which, despite positive ESG integration momentum, excludes many emerging markets. Meanwhile, many emerging markets want the benefits of industralisation and question if it is their responsibility to minimise environmental problems caused by developed countries.
Join us for a lively discussion where our panelists will offer their expert insights on the realities of the ESG imperative in Africa, unpack conundrums and opportunities, and discuss how the continent could lead in modeling sustainability into the creation of an industrial economy.
