The seismic shifts in the corporate landscape underscore the growing need for businesses to address ESG risks as a cornerstone for fostering resilience and ensuring long-term sustainability.

A heartfelt thank you to the 100 representatives from Governance, Embassies, global stakeholders, business leaders, experts, and civil society.
