The Conference

in partnership with UN Climate Change Conference COP17, we promote sustainable and transparent business practices, aiming to promote responsible corporate citizenship and sustainable development – from individual to institutional level.

By providing a platform for thought leaders, businesses, entrepreneurs, policy makers and industry experts with a common mission to connect we inspire business to take actionable steps towards implementing green, sustainable and ethically-sound strategies to mobilise Africa towards a zero-carbon emission, waste-free, fully sustainable, smart continent.

This event will aid in achieving your investment goals, whilst simultaneously supporting ethical and environmentally conscious approaches to do better business!

Our Mission:

At the Future of Sustainability our heart is to unite Policy Makers, Corporates, Academics, and Grassroots-Organizations in a vibrant dialogue around collaboration for Africa’s sustainable future.

No sugarcoating the challenges we face – we embrace African reality and its Monumental Opportunity – and from there we take action towards Future-Proofing African Business. Ready to become Future-Proof? Join us and explore how your participation can shape a better tomorrow! Together, we can create a brighter, greener, and more sustainable future for Africa.
