This trailblazing two-day forum is a critical juncture for various groups to come together, fostering an ethos of ethical leadership and carving out collective routes to sustainable development across Africa and beyond. The forum seeks to nurture enduring collaborations to confront global issues through intersectoral partnerships, highlighting Egypt's central role in bridging continents and forging alliances. It also aims to galvanize the private sector's active involvement in sustainability, ethical supply chains, and leadership, furthering the global shift to clean, sustainable energy as outlined in the Six Transition Framework.
