Our SEE impacts
We drive Africa’s growth by making a positive societal, economic and the environmental (SEE) impact through our seven impact areas: financial inclusion, job creation and enterprise growth, sustainable finance and climate change, infrastructure development, Africa trade and investment, education and health.
Financial inclusion assists economic and human development and reduces inequality. We enable individuals, entrepreneurs and small enterprise to access affordable financial products and services.
We support our clients from microenterprises to large corporations, by offering them improved access to a wide range of financial services for small enterprises, including access to value chains and markets.
In line with the Paris Agreement net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, we support Africa’s transition to a lower carbon economy by assisting our clients with mitigation of climate change impacts.
We facilitate the development and upgrading of sustainable and robust infrastructure, including regional and trans-border infrastructure, and support economic development and the wellbeing of people.
We assist clients with trade solutions, enabling optimal trade and minimising logistical challenges.
We support Africa’s people to access quality education and training by providing student funding solutions, investing in employee skills and focusing CSI on school education and youth and entrepreneur skills development.
We facilitate better health outcomes by investing in our employees’ health, safety and wellbeing. We finance healthcare providers and health-related infrastructure.
