Sahara Group has launched the “Responsibly Sahara” initiative to enhance its sustainability footprint globally.

The Director, Governance and Sustainability, Sahara Group, Ejiro Gray, said the initiative would embody the group’s march towards greening its operations progressively to promote access to clean energy and environmental sustainability.

“The Responsibly Sahara initiative represents our very deliberate commitment to sustainability right from the board, management, and business leaders to our next generation of young graduate management trainees. It is our insignia for sustainability, our enduring call to action to over 6,000 Sahara Group employees to always make a difference when it comes to securing the future today,” she said.

Gray stated that Sahara Group would keep investing in its upstream, midstream, downstream, power, and infrastructure businesses in order to strengthen its environmental, social, and governance footprint.

She claims that Sahara’s membership in CO2CRC, the top global organization for research on carbon capture, utilisation, and storage, shows the company’s dedication to lowering emissions and developing a more sustainable business model.

Sahara Foundation launched the Sahara STEAMers Programme- an initiative that encourages young African students to explore ways of proffering solutions to global issues through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The initiative which kicked off last year in Nigeria, Kenya, and Uganda, is set to expand into more African countries in 2023.

The second cohort of the Sahara Impact Fund, a Sahara Foundation initiative designed to empower young African social entrepreneurs, provided seed funding to beneficiaries from over 10 countries in Africa towards creating solutions that promote access to energy.
