COP26 Impact on Businesses in Africa

Join the Discussions on Panel Discussions and Sustainability Workshops about Transitioning from carbon to green-carbon free economies.

With the agreements and standards from The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) fresh in our minds, the 2022 AfCFTA Infrastructure Conference will define the necessary policies required by businesses of Africa and the solutions and action needed to mitigate climate change, and make the transition from carbon based industries to sustainable renewable environmental responsible economies.

Businesses in Africa have recharged following COVID19 and find themselves facing the challenges of climate change on the cusp of a global revolution requiring all companies to structure their businesses to meet responsible eco-standards from which their future profits and deals will emanate.

Conference participants will help to define how businesses in Africa are required to work together and with governments and global corporations, to provide the changes necessary to limit global warming in their markets, industries, and economies. And while political leaders will introduce laws and regulations to reduce future carbon emissions, companies are required to provide leadership to generate the processes, technology, and services to achieve sustainability.





Solutions to Mitigate Climate Change

Governments and Corporations to Support Small Businesses to implement Green Solutions to Grow and Increase Intra-Africa Trade

The majority of companies in Africa are SMEs, and they will play a vital role tackling climate change and meeting their national governments’ carbon emission targets. Customers across Africa are becoming more aware of climate change and questioning businesses’ environmental responsibilities. And companies that are perceived to be green are likely to be given excellent ratings and generate more business. The IV AfCFTA Infrastructure Investors Conference will promote high-profile workshops exploring technology, programs, and projects adopted to mitigate climate change, and defining the environmental and social responsibilities of governments in the AfCFTA Union.

Companies operating in Africa participating in the event will outline bankable projects aligned to carbon management plans incorporated into their business plans to create sustainability and carbon free environments. Future trends are that companies that are sustainable and responsible to the environment regardless of their size will be given priority over others and benefit from green investment funds, increased profit, brand recognition, and goodwill. The IV AfCFTA Infrastructure Conference will prepare businesses and corporations for this new social and industrial change, supporting them in their endeavours to deliver carbon costed solutions.
