AfricaSIF.org is an independent, pan-African, not-for-profit network, knowledgebase and advocate promoting investment in sustainable development across the continent launched in June 2010. The AfricaSIF.org Project is run by volunteers building a network of institutions and individuals promoting sustainable investment in Africa by investors in public, private and philanthropy sectors across asset classes, countries and stakeholders from our platform @ africasif.org.
AfricaSIF.org is run by a virtual volunteer team building a network of investment people in Africa. We are pro-Africa and pro-sustainable investment, sharing ideas and activities to promote sustainable investment. As a member-driven organization, we will encourage the growth of the investment systems in Africa.
AfricaSIF.org is a new, strategic step in facilitating investment in Africa that purposefully integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. AfricaSIF.org defines "sustainable investment" as: "an approach to investment in any asset class in Africa where environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are proactively integrated at any stage of the investment life cycle for positive impact."
people who make investment decisions in Africa is a key benefit of
AfricaSIF.org. We will develop new research, for example the AfricaSIF.org Trends Report Project 2011-2013,
a sustainable investment benchmarking survey to be conducted every two years. We will
collect other research to put in the public domain. Through our events
and advocacy will encourage investors in Africa to promote sustainable
development of our beautiful continent and its people.
If you are part of making investment decisions in/into Africa, we invite you to join us in advancing our mission at one of our networking events.
