Africa Ahead and RadiantESG Global Investors are delighted to announce a new collaboration on ESG, Diversity and Inclusion.

In a time of resource scarcity, rising social pressures and inequalities, increased need for a strong approach to ESG integration, growing focus on diversity and inclusion in public and private institutions globally, and greater cross-sectoral and cross-regional collaboration in ESG thinking, cultural resiliency and leadership best practices are critical to achieving economic growth that is socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable.

Together we aim to act on our fundamental belief in the economic power of ESG considerations and the link between diversity, improved profitability, better employee retention, and lower investment risk to truly make an impact. Our partnership will enable us to provide sector and region-specific research and insights to our clients and investors on the most pressing challenges, opportunities and best practices in relation to ESG and D&I themes globally, as well as a focus on their implementation in Africa.

We believe this unique and distinctive approach will lead to stronger inter-sectoral and regional collaboration, positively effecting global value-chains.
