This session has been organised by CFA UK's ESG working group
A combination of fragmented supply chains, remote production sites and low-income workers, often with a scant choice of employer and an absence of effective governmental oversight, means the conditions for exploitation and profiteering from poor environmental and labour practices are present across many emerging market and frontier countries.
In this webinar Anthony Linehan, CFA, Head of ESG Strategy and Partner at Somerset Capital will be sharing his experience of navigating this landscape, including experience (and shortcomings) of site visits, useful third party resources, and the steps that can be taken by investors to try and minimise these risks in portfolio companies.
Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
Event: 13:00 - 13:40
CPD Points: 0.75
