WHY SUSTAINABILITY & ESG NOW?
International pressures and investors have resulted in Botswana seeking awareness about sustainability products and services. Organizations are engaging more on sustainability trainings in order to comprehend the importance for sustainability frameworks and the starting point for sustainability into their daily operations. While ESG accountability is key, the requirement for frameworks and integrated reporting from international investors has become a necessity. International investors listed on various international stock exchanges have requirements to invest and build strategic partnerships with brands that associate themselves with sustainable financing and responsible investment. As Botswana lags behind with the integration of ESG prand trainings are required to enlighten the nation about where the world is and where Botswana needs to start to embark on its sustainability
