Overview

What does an increased focus on ESG investing mean for real-world initiatives, especially those already focused on infrastructure and energy investments? Our Young Leaders Group seeks to address this question and other related topics from a Brazilian perspective during this upcoming hour-long discussion. 

As the Brazilian economy continues to develop, strategic funding avenues and outside investments in critical infrastructure present opportunities for international firms. New energy projects must accommodate new standards, bridging the sustainability gap between future needs and traditional resource extraction projects. The conversation will look towards the future of infrastructure investing and explore the role that ESG investing plays in new development.
