The 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development through the UN supported Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is critical for Africa. The SDGs call for action to end hunger and poverty while improving on human health, education, gender equality and access to clean energy. Further, taking action in protecting the climate, water, biodiversity, environment and marine life are key to peace and human development. We believe that business has a critical role to play in SDGs in Africa.
We work towards driving and promoting the SDGs across our interventions and enhancing the role of business. We encourage and support the private sector in playing their role and contribution through corporate social investments, sustainable business practice and responsible investments. We do this by advising the private sector through sustainability reporting using GRI Standards for demonstrating contributions to SDGs by business sector.
