November 2013 - Transparency in the mining sector: moving beyond box-ticking. While mining companies might be slowly improving their transparency, it will remain important to interrogate their claims. Furthermore, there remain crucial areas where the mining sector fails to be transparent, limiting effective stakeholder engagement, an essential component of a “social licence to operate”.
October 2013 - Shifting behaviours: how to encourage more meaningful engagement on ESG. How do we ensure that the various SRI frameworks support real responsible investment by encouraging companies to meaningfully address the impact that they have on the environment, society and the wider economy?
July 2013 - Kigoda Consulting has released a new report Fast Food's Final Frontier: an environmental, social and governance profile which
analyses the key ESG issues in the quick service restaurant (QSR) and casual
dining sector in sub-Saharan Africa and how multinational brands such as
Yum's KFC and McDonald's and regional companies such as Famous Brands
(Steers, Wimpy, Debonairs Pizza etc), Taste Holdings (Scooters, Maxi's, The Fish & Chip Co.) and Spur Corporation (Spur Steak Ranches, John Dory's, DoRego's) are addressing them.
