  • Reading time:3 mins read

From all of us at the African Circular Business Alliance (ACBA), we wish you a Happy New Year filled with possibilities, collaborations, and growth!

2023 was a whirlwind of accomplishments for ACBA, and before we sprint into the exciting unknown of 2024, let’s take a moment to highlight some of our wins:

𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐇𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐨𝐧𝐬: ACBA crossed the Atlantic, planting its roots in the United States to connect African circular businesses with the vast US market. This venture not only supports African Diaspora businesses in their circular journey but also bridges the gap between African circular businesses and potential investors. It’s all part of our ambitious Circular Trade and Circular Business Investment Framework Initiative. 👉

𝐅𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐌𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐬 𝐒𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: Remember the buzz around the Go-Circular campaign? We integrated fashion & technology to raise awareness about the circular economy in a stylish way. Now, you can rock a branded T-shirt with a thought-provoking circular economy quote or even personalise your own with a message close to your heart! Check out the shop and express your circular spirit. 👉

𝐊𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐏𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫: In 2023, we delved deep into the world of circularity through insightful articles exploring various aspects of sustainability. From unlocking the potential of geothermal energy in Africa to emphasizing the power of partnerships in intra-African trade, our publications offer valuable insights for shaping a future built on circular principles. 👉

𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐓𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫: Collaboration is key to creating lasting change, and last year, we embraced this wholeheartedly. We participated in numerous events, forging valuable connections and solidifying existing partnerships, some of which you can read in the News & Events section of our website. 👉
𝐁𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐮𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞: We didn’t just talk the talk in 2023; we walked the walk too! We laid the groundwork for innovative platforms & software that will be unveiled in 2024 and early 2025. Keep an eye out for EmTrack (Emissions Tracking application), iMark (Circular Economy intelligence Market analytical application), and ACBA eD (Circular Economy eLearning Centre). These tools will be game-changers in our collective journey towards a sustainable future. 👉

𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐓𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐨𝐟𝐟: 2024 is already buzzing with anticipation! We have a packed calendar filled with exciting projects in sectors like energy, food & agriculture, digitalisation, conservation, recycling, and transportation. We want you to be part of this incredible adventure! To never miss a thing, stay connected by following us on these social media: 👉

Cheers to a New Year filled with possibilities! #ACBA 🥂
