The Think Green Go Green roundtable, created and organized by the Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is a sustainability learning experience for businesses, public sectors, non-profits and academia decision-makers.

 

Featuring regionally targeted content and recognized leaders from the continent, Think Green Go Green works across industry silos to foster peer-to-peer learning and collaborative solutions. The conference is going to be held at Ethiopian Exhibition Center, Addis Ababa Ethiopia from October 11 - 13 2016.

The 2016 Think Green Go Green Roundtable aims to support African businesses to assess climate mitigation and adaptation technology needs and develop action plans that incorporate sustainability principles into their practices. It will identify and raise awareness on technology transfer mechanisms to help business integrate mitigation/adaptation strategies, identify, assess and deploy climate friendly technologies and develop products (case stories) as initial investigations of a long-term endeavor in climate adaptation for African businesses. Furthermore, the conference will identify barriers to implementation of climate change strategies for business entities and actions to be deployed by business and strategies to overcome them.

PACCI plans to empower attendees with the strategies, tools and connections to green their organizations with profitability in mind.

  • 2016 is ending on a great note for many of Africa’s endangered animals

    In a landmark move, China has announced that it will enforce a total ban on domestic ivory trade within a year. Shops must hand over their licenses to trade ivory by March 2017, China’s State Council says a complete ban will be in place by the end of the year. Under China’s new terms, auctions of previously legally obtained ivory, likely imported in the 1970s, will be permitted only with authorization and under strict supervision. Holders of legally obtained ivory will also need authorization to continue to display it in museums and at exhibitions.
