Entry opens for SERAS Africa Sustainability Awards 2024

Entry opens for SERAS Africa Sustainability Awards 2024

The organizers of The SERAS Africa Sustainability Awards have called for entry for the 18th edition of the awards, considered to be the biggest sustainability and corporate social responsibility recognition on the continent of Africa.

The theme for the 2024 series is “Beyond Sustainability: Enabling Business Transformation Through Full Disclosure”. This edition aims to encourage businesses not to report merely for the sake of it but to utilize reporting to facilitate better decision-making and drive actual change.

Mary Ephraim Egbas, Executive Director at TruCSR Consulting and Chairperson of the SERAS Local Organizing Committee, in a statement said, “A global consensus has emerged regarding four significant shifts in global trends over the past two and a half decades. Initially, the focus was on encouraging organizations to embark on the sustainability journey. The second shift involved urging them to document and report their progress. The third shift revolved around initiatives concerning recycling waste, renewable energy, and climate change. We are now on the brink of a new trend, one that seeks to enhance the depth of the second wave. This is what we shall be focusing on in 2024.”

Entries opened on May 6th and shall close on June 30th, 2024, she said.
