GCX Africa

Organization: Global Carbon Exchange Africa

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Student Name and Class Year:  Oliver Peckham, 2014

Organization description:  Alone, it’s impossible for one company to prosper sustainably. But the strength of an ecosystem lies in diversity and collaboration. Taking nature’s lead, GCX Africa is making business more sustainable through a powerful network of partnerships. Our goal is to help businesses become better corporate citizens, better environmental custodians, and more valuable organisations.

Environmentally or socially damaging operations erode the future of a business, and only add ‘thin’ value through short-term profits. ‘Thick’ value is added when innovative operations help society and ecosystems to flourish, and results in value that grows and endures. Thick value is the output of authentic sustainability.

We collaborate with businesses to embed sustainability and innovation into their DNA, helping to create thick value. This not only enhances lasting profits, but makes businesses more adaptable and resilient to change.

Innovation, collaboration and transparency are keys to authentic sustainability. Through measuring and managing, educating and involving, providing solutions and communicating, GCX Africa enables businesses to unlock the abundant opportunities for growth in this new economy.
