WHAT IS THE AFRICA RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS FORUM?
Responsible businesses are principle and value-driven, demonstrating in addition to profit-making activities, consideration for employees, customers, suppliers and the wider society.
The Lagos Business School is hosting its inaugural Africa Responsible Business Forum (“The Forum”) to explore responsible business for Africa’s sustainable development. The Forum will showcase how African businesses are attempting to be responsible, and provide an avenue for collaboration, innovation and learning for responsible business practices in Africa. While the primary focus of The Forum will be on the role of the private sector, it will also include considerations of how the public sector can work with the private sector to contribute to the sustainable development of Africa.
The Forum will make an important contribution to the global conversation on the role of business in the sustainable development of the continent; presenting from African lenses, African narratives on responsible business.
