CTP 8 - Challenges faced by SMEs in ESG integration

The push to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into business operations has gained significant traction with regulatory changes and growing sustainability concerns. While larger corporations may have the resources to navigate the complexities of ESG integration, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) often face unique hurdles in incorporating sustainable practices into their business models. This could range from difficulties in obtaining financing for sustainability initiatives, complying with ESG reporting requirements, or managing the transition to greener supply chains. This webinar seeks to provide valuable insights and guidance to smaller businesses striving to adopt sustainable practices.
