Joy Chiadika-Nwaeze, who heads the Africa Upcycle Community, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration. “We’re thrilled to team up with Flutterwave, steering corporate brands towards impactful, sustainable actions. Our joint efforts extend beyond this event, fostering a sustainability culture with far-reaching effects across Africa’s financial terrain,” she remarked.

According to a report by the Daily Post, the Flutterwave Sustainability Week 2023 agenda is as follows:

  • Launch on October 23–24, spotlighting the partnership and rallying public engagement.
  • The ‘One Earth, One Future’ ESG Dialogue on October 25 delves into strategic ESG incorporation for organizations.
  • A ‘3R Office Day’ on October 26, where Flutterwave staff learn practical sustainability applications.
  • A communal tree-planting activity was held on October 27 at local schools, affirming a collective pledge to environmental preservation.

Oluwabankole Falade, Flutterwave’s Chief Officer for Regulatory and Public Policy, highlighted the initiative’s alignment with the company’s holistic ESG agenda. “Our role transcends financial transactions. We’re equally devoted to ecological stewardship. The inaugural Sustainability Week epitomizes our dedication to environmental priorities and grassroots collaborations for enduring, sustainable change. This week’s activities are integral to our burgeoning ESG strategy, fortifying our influence in fostering African fintech sustainability,” he asserted.

Their efforts have nourished over 2,500 students and families, tackled period poverty for 500 girls, and extended health services to thousands in underserved communities.
