ESG in Emerging Markets: A Discussion with Leading Women from the Energy Sector
February 2, 2022
8:30 am - 9:30 am
Environmental Stewardship, Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance (ESG) have become the new standard of best corporate practices globally. The Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy program hosted a panel of board directors and C-suite executives from different emerging market companies to examine the dual challenges of ESG compliance and energy transition readiness. The panel discussed how ESG issues compare to the myriad risks that are inherent to operating in emerging markets, the challenges EM companies are facing navigating the energy transition vs. ensuring energy access, profitability and reliability, and the role women corporate leaders play in managing and addressing these challenges.
