First globally recognised Sustainability and ESG Certification in Ghana



The integration of Sustainability and ESG into business operations is increasingly vital for organizations aiming to gain a competitive edge and maintain resilience amidst evolving economic, geopolitical, and consumer landscapes. Employers prioritize candidates who grasp the application of Sustainability and ESG tools to navigate economic challenges. Companies that incorporate sustainability and ESG typically achieve higher performance and greater resilience. Many organizations are eager to expedite their integration of Sustainability and ESG, either by training their leaders or engaging experienced consultants for implementation.

Globally recognized ESG certification is currently lacking in Ghana. Chaint Afrique addresses this gap by launching the Certified Sustainability (ESG) Practitioner Course as the first Affiliate Centre in Africa for the Centre for Sustainability & Excellence in Chicago. This initiative offers advanced Sustainability (ESG) training services in Ghana, providing cutting-edge resources to bridge this crucial certification gap.
