Promoting growth and addressing transition challenges
In an increasingly interconnected world, the relationship between trade and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues cannot be ignored. While trade holds the potential to drive positive change by developing greener supply chains and promoting sustainable manufacturing practices, it can also present challenges such as barriers to entry and bureaucratic burdens for smaller companies. Addressing these issues and exploring new business models and policies to encourage growth and transition, particularly in the context of Africa, will be the focus of an upcoming webinar hosted by Creamer Media in partnership with ESG Africa Conference.
The webinar, which takes place on May 31 at 15:00, aims to shed light on the impact of trade on ESG issues in Africa, a continent with immense potential for economic development. By delving into the complexities of trade dynamics, the session will highlight the need for innovative strategies to harness trade for sustainable growth while addressing social issues.
One aspect to be discussed is the role of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in promoting ESG principles and its effectiveness in shaping global trade practices. The webinar will delve into the measures taken by the WTO to integrate ESG considerations into trade policies and explore how these efforts can be further enhanced.
Additionally, the discussion will touch upon the significance of trade relationships within the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and South-South cooperation frameworks in the evolving landscape of ESG and trade finance. These relationships provide opportunities for knowledge exchange and collaboration to foster sustainable trade practices and address the unique challenges faced by developing economies.
Participants in the webinar include Webber Wentzel attorney in the Competition, Trade and Investment Practice Yael Shafrir, Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies Senior Economist Gaylor Montmasson-Clair, and Investec Bank Limited Head of Institutional Trade Finance George Wilson. The webinar will be facilitated by Strategic Mindsets director Wendy Poulton.
These experts come from various fields, including trade, finance, and sustainability, and will share their insights and experiences. The aim is to identify practical solutions and policy recommendations to maximise the positive impact of trade on ESG issues in Africa while mitigating potential negative consequences.
By bringing together stakeholders from different sectors, this webinar seeks to foster dialogue and collaboration to create a more inclusive, sustainable, and responsible trade ecosystem in Africa. The insights generated from this event aim to contribute to the development of strategies that promote economic growth while ensuring a smooth transition towards a more socially and environmentally conscious trade landscape.
