The call to make a sustainable, equitable and just world is either a challenge or the biggest opportunity of our time. It will require our collective bravery, draw on our individual passions and ask all of us to be ready. It’s a call we have to answer, because that’s Africanacity. That’s Absa.
Absa Group believes our destiny is in Africa and we are excited by the prospects for growth and opportunities for developments the continent holds.
Our Group strategy identifies playing a shaping role in Africa’s growth and sustainability as a key strategic enabler, and the growth we want to achieve is inextricably linked to our firm commitment to be an active force for good in the communities where we serve.
Our ambition is to become a leading, purpose-led African bank inspired by unlocking the potential of the continent that we call home. We are well-positioned to act as a catalyst on the continent; linking big dreamers, ideas, and resources to tackle Africa’s challenges.
We recognise Africa’s vulnerability to climate change, and together with like-minded partners, we will contribute to creating sustainable and value-creating solutions to some of Africa’s greatest environmental challenges.
With our pledge to implement the United Nations Principles for Responsible Banking, we affirm and express our willingness to assume an active leadership role to encourage sustainable practices and enable economic activities that create shared prosperity for current and future generations.
