ESG continues its rapid expansion where it is gaining prominence
in the formation of investment decisions and is now being
increasingly adopted by more mainstream funds.

To facilitate this growth, Renaissance Capital hosts a purely
ESG focused investment forum that brings together major companies
and investment stories across the EM & FM region with key
international investors for panel discussions and exclusive
one-on-one meetings.

The conference’s panel sessions will be live streamed here.
