The Institute for Sustainability Africa (INSAF) has created significant contributions to socio-economic development in Zimbabwe through the role of the private sector. Since the founding in 2010 Initially as Centre Environmental Accountability (CENAC) and transformation in 2012 to ‘Institute for Sustainability Africa (INSAF), the Institute has made great strides in contributing to national and international developments around sustainability, sustainable development, climate change, and private sector peace-building initiatives. The Institute was behind the first internationally compliance sustainability report from Zimbabwe in 2014 which demonstrated how a private company had contributed economic development, environmental stewardship, social development and governance. Since 2014, INSAF has been working with close to 20 large listed companies in Zimbabwe in the finance, manufacturing, mining, real state, retail and agro-based companies. The Institute was behind the drafting of Section 399-404: ‘Sustainability Information and Disclosures’ contained in Statutory Instrument 134 of 2019 (Zimbabwe Stock Exchange Listing Requirements) which require companies to disclose their economic, environmental, social (including human rights) and governance impacts. Further, the Institute of was involved in the development of the National Code of Corporate Governance in Zimbabwe (Zimcode) and is currently leading technical support to the Public Accountants and Auditors Board of Zimbabwe on corporate sustainability reporting. The Institute has made contribution international sustainability standards developments through the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI), founded by UNEP and CERES. As part of our objective research drive, the Institute has been instrumental in research publications which has led to policy formulation. A number of our research have been around the mining sector, gender in the private sector in Zimbabwe, and continental economic development issues in Africa. We have also contributed to international research in UK and The Netherlands. Our Chief Executive continue to play a significant role in the review of international journals like the Sustainability Accounting and Management Policy Journal. The Institute continue to make significant strides in raising awareness of sustainability as developments strategy which requires African countries to integrated economic, environmental, social and governance aspects into their economic and development model. To this effect, the Institute was instrumental in developments of 2 research papers included in the National Competitiveness Report 2016 for Zimbabwe. The Institute for Sustainability Africa (INSAF) has been emerging as strong think-tank from Africa in regional and international conference to share though leadership. We have continued to be invited to address conferences in Asia, Europe, USA, and Australia. We believe if we were well funded and supported, we would reach great milestone in our contributions to socio-economic development in Africa.
