In a world driven by innovation and change, going “green” is an important factor in mitigating climate change and ensuring environmental wellbeing.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria inform a sustainability strategy for most investors seeking to invest in and support the transition to a more resilient, non-carbon-based and socially inclusive economy. 

Reporting on and aligning with the various frameworks and knowing how to practically apply sustainable principles in your organisation has taken on increased importance. These steps must align with meeting stakeholder expectations to generate a measurable sustainable outcome and a financial return.

During the first in a series of Financial Mail Green Economy Digital Dialogues, seasoned entrepreneur Andile Khumalo and a panel of experts engaged on ESG goals, issues and outcomes.

This online event — watch the recoding above — was hosted in partnership with Sanlam Investments, Liberty Two Degrees (L2D) and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA).

The panel included:

  • Brian Unsted: Asset management executive and head of Good Spaces for L2D;
  • Olympus Manthata: Climate finance head for the DBSA; and
  • Jason Liddle: Distribution head for Sanlam Investments.
