Trade has the potential to have a significant impact on ESG issues both positive and negative. Trade can develop supply chains in greener products and manufacturing but it can also create barriers for suppliers through taxes, standards and a bureaucratic burden for small companies. In this webinar we will explore the impact of trade and ESG issues on Africa and what new business models and policies need to be put in place to encourage growth whilst allowing for a transition, especially the social issues.

The role of the World Trade Organisation in promoting ESG issues as well as its effectiveness will be a focus area as well as BRICS or other South-South trade issues in the context of an evolving ESG framework and trade finance.
