Change Through Leadership

Reflecting on the past, discussing the present, driving the future of ESG

The world has fundamentally shifted over the last few decades. Looking at profit and financial considerations is no longer enough. Stakeholders including shareholders, investors, customers and government are expecting more. ESG is the latest trend in sustainability reporting and it is changing the way in which we allocate capital, run our operations and develop our strategies. This requires a different leadership mindset that does not see ESG as an add-on or compliance exercise, but something that provides competitive advantage, transformative innovation and puts stakeholder capitalism at the heart of our actions.

ESG Africa Conference Session Themes

Helping organisations tackle some of the common challenges faced. How do you collect and maintain data hosted in silos across the organisation? Are common reporting standards achievable?

Discussing trends and challenges as well as ways in which Africa can better attract direct investment, by taking a leading role in its adoption of ESG standards

What are the changes taking place in the regulatory environment? How will this impact trade in the future? What role is ESG activism playing in terms of holding organisations to account?

It is essential to take a more systemic and transformative approach to ESG, which goes beyond “just reporting”, looking at the way ESG should influence business strategy, business culture (from board level, investors, CEOs, leadership team and any employees), leadership mindset.
