The global coalition for net-zero emissions is growing. Along with companies, cities and financial
institutions, more than 130 countries have now set or are considering a target of reducing emissions
to net zero by mid-century. While net zero is a critical longer-term goal, steep emissions cuts –
especially by the largest greenhouse-gas emitters – are imperative in the next 5 to 10 years in
order to keep global warming to no more than 1.5 °C and safeguard a livable climate.

Standard Bank’s African Markets Revealed is a research report providing detailed, comprehensive, medium term (up to 2 years ahead) forecasts for 21 key African economies.
Africa is our home. And has been for over 160 years. Today our commitment to her people and her prosperity is stronger than ever. Because when this continent wins, economies grow, communities thrive and our clients succeed.
The summit builds on 2022’s Net zero theme, focussing on climate change in the context of energy access and energy transition, while acknowledging the link to ESG.
The African Central Bank Conference hosts regulators and central bank officials from across the continent. The key themes focus on the broader monetary policy environment, on financial market development, and on strategic responses to shared challenges. The aim of the conference is to raise awareness of the pipeline of innovative solutions across different countries as it is key for African sovereigns to form partnerships with institutional investors as the controllers of the largest pool of assets available for long-term investing.
Mercer, in collaboration with MiDA Advisors and Standard Bank Group have joined forces to publish the second edition of the Mercer report publication titled “Infrastructure financing in sub-Saharan Africa” to present the attractive case for investing in Africa.
The summit builds on 2021’s Net-Zero theme, focussing on climate change in the context of energy access and energy transition, while acknowledging the link to ESG.
