ESG: Shaping the Future of Colombia’s Business Landscape

Friday / May 19 2023 08:45 - 12:30 UTC-5


The Business Year will host ESG: Shaping the Future of Colombia’s Business Landscape to dive into the aspects of ESG that are driving Colombia’s economy forward in distinct ways. In 2022, Colombia elected a new government that has placed sustainability at the heart of its manifesto. Across the public and private sectors, renewed efforts are driving forward all things sustainable. For several years now, the toolkit of environment, society, and governance, or “ESG,” has helped enterprises from across the economy place sustainability at the heart of their activities. From internal organization to external engagement, ESG has played a leading role in determining businesses engagement with the theme of sustainability. It has also helped in unpacking and rendering accessible sustainability, which is sometimes used as a buzzword without much substance underpinning it.
