World Law Forum Roundtable on ESG in Emerging Markets

by | Sep 7, 2022

Students of Oxford are invited to participate in the Roundtable on “ESG in Emerging Markets” being co-hosted by World Law Forum and BTG Legal on Friday, the 16th of September, 2022 in London, UK.

While there has been significant discussions and debates on various issues relating to ESG globally – a lot of it has been viewed from a western lens and the focus has largely been on the US, UK and US markets. Little to no discussion on ESG is centred around Emerging Markets, which comes with its own unique challenges and several companies face huge challenges in implementing ESG principles in such countries. This Roundtable will discuss several key and emerging ESG issues from the lens of emerging markets.We would be delighted if you participate in the roundtable.

Some of the confirmed speakers are:

  • Amy Bowe, Vice President – ESG, Africa Oil Corp
  • Paul Clements-Hunt, Founder, The Blended Capital Group
  • Souad Bencheneb Ghezali, General Counsel – Sustainability, Schlumberger
  • Arsenio Lampiao, General Counsel, ThirdWay Africa
  • Laura Rich, General Counsel, Marimaca Copper
  • Rebecca Perlman, Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills
  • Michiel Coenraads, Partner, DLA Piper
