Green enterprise encompasses many sectors from ethical fashion to sustainable green energy. Policies and regulations should be put in place to challenge existing and upcoming enterprises to produce goods and services in more eco-friendly ways and minimise emissions through cleaner production methods. This is at the heart of creating a sustainable future for youth in Africa. This panel will bring together advocates of eco-friendly practices from across the continent who through their enterprises have created sustainable greener practices. Panellists will discuss ways to balance the costs and benefits associated with going green and suggest ways to create eco-friendly, safe and more productive enterprises.
