What does sustainability mean at the Africa Finance Corporation?
It means the whole of Africa to us. We take our responsibility and commitment to building Africa’s infrastructure seriously. Africa’s future can only be safeguarded through the development of infrastructure that does not threaten surrounding communities and the natural environment, whilst promoting economic growth and improving the quality of life of the African people. At AFC, we are poised to take on this challenge, by striving to achieve sustainability through careful and proactive environmental and social risk management.
“Our goals at AFC are centred around providing financing solutions for infrastructure that can stand the test of time and sustainability. To achieve this, we continually strive to ensure that we identify and reduce environmental and social risks associated with our transactions. We believe it’s the only way to achieve true sustainability.”
