A greener future for all

Our Sustainability Promise

Africa’s Green Economy Summit celebrates and brings together industry leaders to build dialogue on moving the sector forward. In keeping with the principle of a sustainable, inclusive and equitable future for Africa, the Summit takes responsibility for reducing its carbon footprint and ensuring the introduction of environmentally aware and recognised practices.

As a partner event to the Cape Town E Prix, the African calendar race of the global Formula e series, and the only carbon net zero race series in the world, we are in good company, and we are purposeful in our sustainability actions.

Although not net zero carbon yet, we are committed to achieving this target in future editions as the Summit builds.
