Doing business in Africa: Sustainability risks and opportunities
Investors, shareholders and consumers more than ever are demanding that companies change the way they do business, become more transparent, and take an active role in addressing social, cultural, and environmental issues. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have taken their place in today’s corporate world, and businesses that ignore it do so at their own peril.
A key aspect of sustainability is for companies to identify and prioritise the issues that matter most to their business and stakeholders. What are material sustainability issues when doing business in Africa? What do African stakeholders including government and communities expect from businesses? What initiatives and tools exist for businesses who want to engage?
The lunch seminar we will share insights and start a conversation between businesses across multiple sectors on sustainability risks and opportunities in Africa.All sessions
