Embracing ESG


The concept of a sustainable business has been influenced by the need imposed from the new era for constant improvement and mastery. Nowadays, the ESG concept has become the new perspective through which businesses’ sustainability is observed and measured. It refers to the organization’s commitment to monitoring and measuring its environmental, social, and governance impact as a foundation that defines the organization’s strategy for long-term development and social responsibility.

As an advocate for promotion of ESG-related topics and development of a strong ESG-compliant business sector, the AmCham ESG Committee hosts the first ESG Conference, that will be held on Wednesday, February 8th, 2023. The goal of the Conference is to promote and increase understanding of the benefits of implementing the ESG concept from a business standpoint. Aiming to inspire, educate, and motivate other businesses, the conference would also provide a forum for AmCham members that have begun to embrace the ESG idea to share their best practices and success stories.

The conference is empowered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE).

The conference is organized in line with ESG criteria.
