About Us

About Us

Starting in Ghana, Footprints is piloting a new approach to advance the inclusive development of African economies, focussing on the role the private sector can play to uplift the environment and community.

Footprints supports SMEs to adopt future-friendly practices and create jobs, using supply chains as a tool for development. The private sector, particularly SMEs, is at the centre of environmental and social challenges, both as a cause but, more importantly, as a potential solution. Focussing on 2 sectors, Catering and Industrial Waste Management, we are championing business as a force for good and supporting business models that exemplify this.

We have 3 goals in our 5yr strategy to trial an approach to system change. All activities will be used to educate and raise awareness of sustainable development.

1.      Business level: supporting role-model companies to adopt business practices that create solutions to environmental/ social challenges

2.    System level: designing a roadmap for inclusive, regenerative development of the 2 sectors

3.      Operational level: developing a sustainable financial model to deliver our objectives so that they can be scaled and replicated across the continent.

Our Values

1.      Local solutions to local challenges, working with and developing local experts.

2.      Get into the trenches and learn by doing, truly listening to those already there.

3.      Continuous improvement, of ourselves, our work and those around us, even if that requires difficult conversations.

4.      Communicate openly and promptly about concerns or weakness and work together to remove obstacles.

5.      Commit to excellence and take responsibility for achieving it, even where your role is small.

6.      Bring your own flavour and live your values.
