We are so pleased that you are interested in joining us for this dynamic conversation about the future of South Africa’s business landscape.

Driving Africa's Circular Economy

For the past decade, Fetola has explored answers to these questions through their sustainability accelerators (through partnerships with JP Morgan, the Embassy of Finland, Nedbank, WWF and others) whilst building small businesses that are both profitable and more circular.

Join us for an empowering dialogue on Africa’s shift towards sustainability and the circular economy, we’ll explore pathways to a greener, more prosperous African future. Learn from industry leaders, gain insights, and discover how you can be part of this transformative journey. Register for our next event


Sustainability, Small Business and the Circular Economy

Sustainability forms a key part of Fetola’s agenda, with circularity being one of the core pillars of our business accelerators. Yet with 6 500 small businesses for every 1 corporate in South Africa, we need to find better ways to scale the transition of small business to more sustainable models if we are to have lasting, meaningful impact. Fetola can’t achieve this alone – we need strategic thinking, collaboration and amplification to create impact.


Speaking to stakeholders with an interest in the sustainability sector, this webinar is a dynamic conversation about the future of South Africa’s business landscape. Join Fetola CEO Catherine Wijnberg as she shares insights from Fetola’s Circular Economy Accelerator and speaks about the circular economy, market demand and green finance in driving positive impact.
