“Sustainable Financing Goals ”
Africa needs a specific near-term, targeted transition financing plan to upgrade its refineries and infrastructure to ensure that the continent’s projected increasing fuels demand is met with cleaner fuels, produced mostly from the continent’s refineries, while reducing Africa’s carbon footprint.
This workshop will focus on the key requirements for building a two-step Sustainable Finance Plan for Africa as follows:
- Phase 1: Enable sustainable transition financing for either new industrial projects or trade finance to meet cleaner fuels objective(s) in line with the AFRI Fuels Roadmap 2030 deadline
- Phase 2: Enlist African Downstream Petroleum industry (refiners, distributors, etc.) to serve as key enabler(s) to implement realistic plans in support of global ESG and Climate Change policies
Through this workshop, we will debate about opportunities and potential financing options to develop an actionable Sustainable Finance Plan for Africa.
