Africa REN is supported by SCAF

Early 2020 Africa REN has been audited and obtained SCAF financial support.

SCAF II is an initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) aimed at assisting renewable energy companies and projects by providing access to seed capital to foster the emergence of privately financed projects in developing countries.

The IFC Equator Principles

Africa REN chose to have its projects financed by financial institutions that have signed these principles and are committed to systematically assess and manage the social and environmental risks of the projects.

Consequently, all our projects comply with the Equator Principles and are subject to regular independent audits.

United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI)

ESG issues are fully integrated into all our investment analysis and decision-making processes.

2020 Rapport

Africa REN strictly complies with the anti-corruption and anti-money laundering laws of the European Union and United States, as well as the Equator Principles of the IFC and the UNPRI.
