Invest Africa, in partnership with Control Risks, invites you to attend its event on ESG Risk Management and supporting sustainable private investment in Africa.

Over the past decade, tens of billions of dollars have been invested in businesses and enterprises across Africa, contributing to the economic growth of the continent. The mainstreaming of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) frameworks and reporting obligations means that investors are having to integrated ESG principles into their risk management processes. There is a huge amount of change expected in the coming year around the regimes governing ESG standards and obligations. In the meantime, investors are under pressure to interpret emerging regulatory obligations related to ESG due diligence in their investee and portfolio companies, those companies’ supply and value chains, as well as new regimes governing corporate ESG and sustainability reporting disclosures. Embedding ESG-specific risk management systems across value chains can help mitigate the impacts of any regulatory or reputational risks but knowing where to start while the ground is still shifting is the key to doing this successfully.

Join Invest Africa in partnership with Control Risks as we examine key principles of ESG risk management for private investors, and how they can support positive impact for the business and community as a whole.
