Corporate custodianship – “doing well by doing good”
Todd Haskell noted that the thousands of US companies on African soil have “done well, by doing good” and that this sustainable, community-oriented outlook must continue. This showcases US corporate custodianship and citizenship on the continent.
Angela Russell, the CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce in South Africa and a member of the Awards’ organizing committee, remarked that there are vibrant initiatives that promote conscious investing. Prosper Africa, for example, brings together tools from the US government to provide businesses and investors in Africa with market insights, deal support, financing, and solutions to strengthen business climates.
