CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS GLOBAL CONFERENCE 2023

The Conference Goal

To help companies become more sustainable and responsible, showcase commitments to sustainability, and connect companies with aligned-financiers.

 

In the next decade, the growth of green funding and sustainable investment is expected to continue on an upward trajectory, with developing countries and African nations being a major focus. According to industry forecasts, assets under management (AUM) for EU-based ESG mutual funds are expected to reach an unprecedented €7.6tn by 2025. The incorporation of sustainable practices into all business and investment decisions is no longer optional; it is imperative. The need to run a sustainable business is now paramount, especially for companies operating in developing nations and Africa, as the world moves towards a greener economy.

Carbon Footprint

The conference aims to hold large organizations accountable for their carbon footprint, a key issue in sustainability and climate change. The goal is to encourage these organizations to adopt sustainable practices to reduce their carbon emissions and promote a more sustainable future.

MSMEs and Sustainability

The conference seeks to encourage MSMEs to adopt sustainable practices and become sustainably responsible. This is important because MSMEs make up a significant portion of businesses worldwide, and their actions can have a significant impact on sustainability.

Climate Resilient Cities

The conference aims to address the need for cities to become more resilient to climate change. It will focus on the role of industry and government policies in promoting sustainable action.
