The ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue has earned a reputation as a premier event that attracts luminaries from various fields, providing a platform for addressing pivotal challenges related to sustainable development in Africa. This year’s installment holds even greater significance as it centers on the profound impact of Economic, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategies in advancing sustainable development.
Themed ‘Advancing Sustainable Development in Africa: Unleashing the Power of Environmental, Social, Governance Strategies for Impact,’ this year’s Breakfast Dialogue aims to bring together a diverse group of leaders representing various sectors. They will engage in an in-depth exploration of how ESG principles can be harnessed to drive the sustainable development of organizations and, in turn, advance Africa’s broader sustainable development agenda.
Osayi Allie, CEO of ACT Foundation, emphasized the importance of this event, stating, “The 7th ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue promises to be a game-changer, offering a unique platform for leaders in the public, private, and social sectors to unlock the immense potential of Economic, Social, and Governance principles for organizations of all sizes. The effective implementation of ESG practices by African institutions can make a monumental contribution to achieving sustainable development across the continent.”
The event’s keynote speaker, Oyeyimika Adeboye, Managing Director, West Africa, Mondelez International, will take center stage to share her profound insights on this pivotal subject. She will be joined by a distinguished lineup of speakers, including Marilyn Obaisa-Osula, Associate Director, ESG and Sustainability Services, KPMG; Dr. Eugene Itua, CEO of Natural Eco Capital; Tendai Matika, Manager of the Global Reporting Initiative, Africa; and Mudrakat Alabi-Macfoy, Head of Sustainability and Circularity at Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA).
