UNPACKING AFRICA’S ESG PROGRESS

1 AUGUST 2024 | 09H00 – 12H30

ABOUT

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) imperatives have become fundamental to the investment decisions businesses make. By effectively including and implementing ESG in business strategy, businesses can become more resilient and attractive for investment.

The 2024 Sanlam ESG Barometer is broadening its scope to include insights from companies listed in Kenya. The report, using Krutham-led research (formerly Intellidex), will delve into the evolving ESG dynamics, examining how both JSE-listed and Kenyan-listed companies are actively enhancing environmental and social outcomes through their activities.

Join Sanlam and Business Day for the launch of the second Sanlam ESG Barometer Report that will continue to shine a spotlight on ESG additionality and explore how investment decisions by companies can drive transformative positive impact for societies.
