By 2025, more than a third of global assets under management could be ESG-aligned. However, just 3% of sustainable investment is directed towards Africa. What steps can be taken to ensure sustainable finance reaches its potential in Africa and just how high can that potential reach?

Join us and the London Stock Exchange in this live webinar as we discuss the actions investors, businesses and policymakers can take to mobilise finance in Africa to deliver lasting benefits for profits, people, and planet. Together with a panel of experts, we will explore the features of sustainable finance that make it uniquely well-suited to African markets, the barriers that need to be overcome to increase investment flows, and examples of successful efforts from across the continent.
