Panel Discussion: Financing the Energy Transition in Africa & the Role of ESG Financing

Financing Energy Transition projects is a challenge in any market and in this panel we will look at those challenges with a specific focus on the African context and the context around carbon reduction and replacement projects.

In addition, COP 26 marked a seismic change in how corporates and investors are approaching the financing of projects in Africa. ESG and Sustainable investing is in the forefront of every investor’s mind, and we need to address how as a continent we can develop strong ESG frameworks to maintain competitiveness and ensure Africa remains relevant to the investment community. New parameters surrounding environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment is simply something we have to address. For every integrated energy and oil and gas company, climate change has been pivotal in rethinking investment strategies, and it is without a doubt the greatest investor pressure and threat for the upstream today. In this session we explore how investors, NOCs and operators are planning their ESG strategies to maintain competitiveness.
