Dangote Group, IHS Towers and BUA Group emerged the most responsible businesses in Africa at the 16th edition of the Sustainability, Enterprise, and Responsibility (SEAR) Awards organised in Lagos
According to a statement issued by the body, speaking to the theme Sustainability: Bridging the SDGs Gap through Impact Investing, the Executive Director of TruCSR/The SERAS CSR Awards Africa, Mary Ephraim said, “CSR and sustainability have gone through their evolution. From philanthropy to sustainability and now to circularity.
“Through these various seasons, prosperity has never been a norm absent in Africa.
"Despite all the problems we face as a continent, capitalists have remained largely happy.
"Entrepreneurs have continued to be productive.
"Our peculiar challenges have given rise to innovation as never seen before.
"For the first season in our human history, we face an existential threat to our ability to live on this planet.”
Furthermore, she stated, “Before now, the conversations had been about how we could leave a befitting world for our children to inherit.
“But at the moment, it is how we as parents can live so that our offspring get the opportunity to survive. This is why we chose the theme.”
