OUR SCOPE

The circular economy is a new and fast developing market, but business opportunities may be constrained by issues such as legislation and policy, a lack of credible information, limited market awareness and demand, business finance and skills. The African Circular Business Alliance (ACBA) is focused on assisting businesses to fully understand the green market, its shifting dynamics and provide useful and relevant support to existing and potential circular businesses. Our business support activities are wide-ranging, and include:-

  • Helping potential investors understand the local market, connect with the right people and encounter fewer barriers to doing business
  • Providing policy, technical assistance and regulatory advocacy
  • Facilitating access to funding opportunities
  • Decarbonization pathways for businesses
  • Facilitating access to circular markets
  • Establishing skills development partnerships
  • Networking and information-sharing
  • Research and development
  • Sharing our expert knowledge through publications
