Halotrade CEO & founder Shona Tatchell is heading out to GTR Africa in Cape Town to speak on a panel addressing the question: ‘Has the dial moved sufficiently in the sustainability conversation?’
It will be an interesting debate with fellow panelists Zhann Meyer, Head of Agricultural Commodities, Nedbank CIB; Andrey Gurevich, Global Product Head, Global Trade Supplier Finance, IFC, and Marc Harel, Head of Institutional Banking, The Mauritius Commercial Bank.
Themes for this session include:
- Specific sustainability requirements for international companies participating in global value chains: How they have evolved and what are the latest trends?
- How banks and other FIs help corporates in implementing sustainability requirements by offering sustainability-linked pricing to suppliers and buyers participating in SCF programmes
- Helping emerging market suppliers improve their ESG performance and meet the requirements of global buyers
- The extent to which independent certifications (Bonsucro, BSCI, Fairtrade etc.) can help emerging market suppliers to enter global value chains
