The Africa Investment Forum (AIF), in partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center, invites you to a private roundtable on opportunities in sustainable investment and clean energy in the run up to this year’s Africa Investment Forum, a flagship initiative of the African Development Bank in concert with other leading African and global development finance institutions which will be held in Abidjan December 1-3rd. The conversation will feature leading investors in sustainable investment and clean energy and live opportunities in the AIF marketplace in the lead up to the Forum. The panel will include executives from Principles for Responsible Investment, the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, and Goldman Sachs. Moderation will be provided by Africa Center Senior Fellow Ms. Aubrey Hruby.

AIF is a flagship initiative of the African Development Bank in concert with its founding development finance partners. Its mission is to create a pipeline of bankable deals to present in critical sectors across African markets and accelerate the process of ongoing projects. At the 2019 Forum, AIF featured fifty-seven Boardroom deals valued at USD $67.7 billion and succeeded in crowding-in investment interests across fifty-two deals worth USD $40.1 billion from twenty-five countries. To ensure these investment flows are sustainable, new investors must learn from seasoned investors about how to deepen development impact and achieve attractive returns from robust ESG strategies. Join us for a conversation with leading investors in sustainable investment and clean energy, and for a presentation of two current AIF investment opportunities.

This invite-only event will take place on Thursday, November 4th, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (ET) via Zoom. Please register here to confirm your attendance and receive Zoom details or respond to Nick O’Connell at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
