The Brundtland Commission defined Sustainable Development in 1987 as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs“
The concept of sustainable development applies to nations but also to individual companies. More and more companies are now investing in the improvement of their social capital and are addressing ways in which their business activities are impacting on the natural environment. For the business world, adopting the 'Triple Bottom Line' as concept translates more transparently the expectations from sustainability considerations.
As we all seek to pursue growth and enhance our business results, the objective is to continuously improve our efficiency while maintaining highest sustainability levels. The integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) into a company or country’s strategy in the 21st Century is a sine qua non for long term competitiveness.

Economic Research on Africa
Various studies have demonstrated that Emerging Markets hold the best prospects for growth. Besides the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) or the Next-11 countries (Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam), there are so many other countries displaying exceptional economic performance and exhibiting a bright future potential.
Our focus on Africa legitimately rests on a set of parameters pointing to a positive development path: population size, high economic rates of growth, improving investment climate, political stability, better governance, rising Foreign Direct Investment.
To help you seize these opportunities across Africa, we conduct customised research for your business needs.
