TAKE 10 MINUTES AND BE A PART OF BUILDING AFRICA'S FIRST EVER SUSTAINABILITY INDEX FOR PRIVATE BUSINESS IN AFRICA.
The KudosImpact Pulse is a short survey to find out what unlisted African businesses are doing to support a healthier planet and stronger societies, and what strategies they are using to manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities.
The results will give you an idea of how you perform in relation to your peers, both industry-specific and regional.
We’ve selected 16 of the most important issues for African businesses and ask 21 questions to capture and compare current practices. These issues have been flagged by international investors as top priorities. By completing this survey you are helping us position Africa as a leading destination for responsible investors.Take your pulse now
For many businesses this may be the first time such questions will be explored and for others the responsible business journey may already be well entrenched. Better data will support practical decisions about the next best strategies for companies who want to improve.
Through the results generated from KudosImpact Pulse, we will share Africa-specific trends and highlight opportunities for innovation and business resilience in the coming months.
There is increasing evidence that supports the investor case for including environmental, social and governance (ESG) information in the investment decision-making process. In Private Equity deals in Africa, ESG is also a way for an investor to add value to investee companies.
According to the United Nation's supported Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), “to ignore ESG factors is to ignore risks and opportunities that have a material effect on the returns delivered to clients and beneficiaries”. The KudosImpact Pulse will unlock the potential for better collaboration between investors and companies about value creation and positive impact on the continent.
In September 2015, the world agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). Among other things, these goals address extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.
Achieving them is also good for business, which relies on a healthy environment, strong communities, and stable economies.
The KudosImpact Pulse tests how well African companies are already aligned with the SDGs by focusing on aspects we know also link to business success:
The KudosImpact Pulse is one part of the full KudosAfrica Assessment, which consists of 106 questions covering 50 aspects that allow us to assess risk and benchmark performance of companies across four management themes: Commitment, Efficiency, Resilience and Innovation.
The full KudosAfrica Assessment gives you a strategy tool to plan your sustainability journey, and a verified report with which to engage investors.
