Give the Green Light: Leading women on why sustainability is good business
From promoting remote working to helping eco-villages, here are just some ways that business can be kind to our planet
Working at Tanganika, Aminata specialises in producing a range of eco-friendly products that tap into the rich cultures and landscapes of the African continent. At the same time, it reminds us of the vulnerability of these regions to a climate crisis they did not create.
I sincerely believe that the economic development of Africa will not take place without villages and family farms. This is why I have personally chosen to work in West Africa with exactly these eco-villages, farms and eco-responsible craftsmen.
This commitment is proven right each day, because these earth craftsmen protect and respect the earth on a daily basis. Tanganyika is the second deepest lake in the world and contains 20% of the world’s fresh water. By using the name of this symbolic lake for an Afro éco-responsible shop, I wanted to put Africa at the heart of the debate on climate change and highlight the ancestral solutions that already exist on the continent. With Tanganika, my team and I help family farms and eco-villages to produce high quality artisanal products that meet international standards and can be sold anywhere in the world. This guarantees their economic autonomy while allowing them to value their know-how and an ancestral African ecological heritage that is important to remember.
We give them back the power to act for a fair and authentic trade because they are the ones who set the profit margins.
It is a partnership that guarantees us a more just and balanced world.
