The AECF and its governing body, the Board of Directors (BOD), strives for positive sustainable development outcomes in the investments it makes in Sub-Sahara Africa. These include:
- Direct investments into private companies by AECF
- Investments implemented through financial intermediaries.
AECF believes that a crucial element for the attainment of positive development outcomes is the environmental and social sustainability of these investments which it seeks to pursue through the application of this Environmental & Social (E&S) Policy.
