GREEN BUSINESS DIALOGUE
On the 30th November 2017, Stimulus Africa had the privilege of hosting a green business dialogue which was attended by Hans Magnusson, head of Africa at SIDA, Maria Selin, Head of SIDA Zimbabwe and a group of young entrepreneurs from Zambia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. The dialogue was exploring what the green agenda means to Africans and how entrepreneurs can create sustainable enterprises. A key take away of the dialogue was the “cradle to cradle” ecosystem in which the waste materials of one business become the raw materials of another. The need for economic incentives to make it expensive to be “brown” and cheap to be “green” was agreed upon.
