Industries and Services
Sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI) is an investment discipline that considers environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria for the major industries we serve.
In consonance with our philosophy to provide excellent and qualitative service for the industries we serve, to maintain effective co-ordination, and meet deadlines, each project is assigned a highly skilled, multi-disciplinary and tested team of professionals equipped with vast knowledge of the African and global business trends.
Mining and Metals
We offer an integrated approach that combines industry expertise and assistance in maximising projects’ social benefits while minimising their environmental impacts through systematic stakeholders engagement standard practices, impact analysis and mitigation, monitoring and follow up to ensure project sustainability throughout the project lifecycle.
Our approach working in African countries is unique and pays attention to local regulations while upscaling the standard where necessary.
Oil and Gas
To help ensure that projects are environmentally and socially sound and sustainable, we assist our clients in the Oil and Gas sector to embrace their responsibilities and be responsible for ensuring that the projects are prepared and implemented in such ways that it meets all applicable requirements of local and internationally acceptable Environmental and Social Standards through out all the stages of planning until decommissioning. Our solutions spans through Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Facilities, Offshore Oil and Gas Development, Onshore Oil and Gas Development.
Agriculture is inherently risky. we help investors mitigate risks so their investments grow and succeed.
We provide services to help the sector address the ever increasing demand in the Agricultural sector in an environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive way.
As the agribusiness sector recognises the need to make sustainable use of land, other natural resources and to raise labor standards, we help companies set benchmarks for sustainable production in line with industry best practices. In areas such as sequestering carbon, managing watersheds, preserving biodiversity, and producing renewable energy resources, Richflood works with its clients to achieve success in their projects through improved environmental services.
Greater reliance on water, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal sources, as well as more efficient energy use, can help create more jobs and foster sustainable economic growth.
Richflood recognises sustainability challenges from generation, transmission, and distribution upgrades in African countries and provides solutions suitable for different scenarios. We assist borrowers and project proponents better manage environmental and social risks of projects and to improve development outcomes
Modern roads are essential to move goods and people efficiently and open up new areas for development. According to the World Health Organisation, about 1.24 million people die each year on the world’s roads and millions are injured. Facing increased needs for better transport infrastructure (modernising ports, airports, roads, railroads and urban transport systems essential to development), more governments are recognising that modern, well-maintained roads are key to sustained social and economic development without sacrificing environmental and social considerations.
In developing countries, the lack of proper transport infrastructure can mean the difference between sustainable progress and persistent under-development.
Our analysis of project sustainability from planning through construction, and operational phases are an added advantage through well thought out Environmental and Social Frameworks in line with the World Bank's Standards.
Water is at the centre of economic and social development; it is vital to maintain health, grow food, generate energy, manage the environment, and create jobs.
Community or Urban water supply planning, Waste water management infrastructure, expanding or improving water infrastructure, improving management practices and ensuring community engagement are areas we add value for sustainability
Investment Liabilities Due Diligence
In principle, the financial impacts resulting from some risk exposures can be hedged through strategic asset allocation and portfolio construction. These are effectively systemic and will require policy action to address environmental change and enable investors to meet their financial goals.
Investors are beginning to ask how global environmental trends such as increased pressure on land for food production, soil degradation, localised water stress and extremes of weather will affect the macroeconomic performance of countries, and how this will play out at the industry and firm level.
Richflood analytically supports investments and provide professional advise as to how environmental and social risks associated with investments can be minimised.
Climate Smart Agriculture
More and more countries in Africa are seeing climate-smart agriculture (CSA) as a solution to diverse challenges. CSA is an integrated approach to managing landscapes that boosts productivity, enhances resilience and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Our CSA Investment Plans (developed for private and public sectors investors) identify concrete actions that can be taken to boost climate-smart agriculture, both in the form of investment opportunities and policy design and implementation.
We are conscious of the continuous standardisation of the Environmental Health and Safety requirements for investment projects in line with Good International Industry Practice (GIIP).
