Positioning South Africa for a Green Recovery

By Premal Ranchod

Sustainable finance may not yet be as mainstream locally as it is globally, but it is gathering momentum.

Following the devastating impact which the Covid-19 pandemic has had on South Africa and the world, governments, corporates, and citizens collaborate to focus on a green economic recovery.

This is a result of the pandemic being inextricably intertwined with global environmental issues such as biodiversity loss, climate change, air and water pollution.

The South African government is subscribing to a green recovery as the blueprint for rebuilding and growing the economy with sustainability, resilience and inclusion as key priorities.
