Why is good Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) in fragile African jurisdictions important? GGA Executive Director SADC, Chris Maroleng, is interviewed on this question by Sheila Khama, independent consultant and non-executive director of Tullow Oil plc.

He explains the nexus between ESG and governance in locations where Africa’s strategic minerals can be found – often fragile jurisdictions characterised by bad governance – and outlines the importance and context of good conduct by the extractive industries in partnering for development, and mainstreaming it into their operations, ultimately to their own benefit.
