Commonly used expressions such as “fortune favours the brave” and “make hay before the sunset”- may sound like mere sayings, but in essence illustrate the miraculous formation of our humble, yet buoyant home-grown mining giant, Mbuyelo. It all began not too long ago when discussion papers were published and debates held between the general public and parliament around the mining charter, which eventually led to the enactment of the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act 28 of2002(-“MPRDA”). The founder of Mbuyelo group, Mr Rirhandzu Owner Siweya, closely followed these intriguing developments and when the material opportunities were presented by the eventual implementation of the Act, he grabbed it with both hands!

Sustainable and Responsible Investing is a rapidly growing investing space. Industry expert Sara E. Murphy presents the history, drivers, and trends in this industry, with examples, anecdotes, and suggestions for learner engagement. Visit http://greenleadersdc.com to learn more. We had a great session and discussion on sustainable and responsible investment. Workshop leader Sara E. Murphy took us through the background and current trends in the space, and presented some of the key issues that would be relevant to various levels of students (beginning vs. advanced/graduate levels), and what specific points could help make the financial case for pursuing sustainable business paths. Some key points included: Students' roles as consumers and how that impacts companies' decisions to "go green" The importance of showing results and accountability (whether in investing or learning) The role of moral questions when discussing sustainable investing concepts (recommended or not?) Using financial concepts and examples to make a connection with students History of Responsible Investing It began as a religious movement using an exclusionary process that eliminated investment that did not fit with the investor’s values. SRI has now evolved into an engine for seeking out investment opportunities. SRI is currently a powerful value-adding investment strategy if managed correctly SRI: A Victim of its own success? 15 years ago, analysis was easy. Then SRI became the world’s most quickly growing asset class. Many companies want to wear the responsible investing mantle. This makes the analyst’s job a nightmare. SRI has suffered some of the same issues as the organic food label, as standards and claims are difficult to verify with certainty. State of Responsible Investing Today To get a clear sense of what role SRI plays in the broader market and for individuals, it’s helpful to consider the basic premise of investing. Investment, in the purest sense of the word, is the act of buying a piece of a company to promote its growth over time. Long-term investment necessarily requires sustainability, in the purest sense of that word. It’s important to ask basic questions to put metrics and data in context. Managing Risk Climate Change: You may not think it’s a risk, but the SEC now requires disclosure in annual filings. Other risks include: Unburnable Carbon & Stranded Assets affect coal, oil, and gas companies Social License to Operate affect mining, forestry, and other extractive companies Reputation Risk, Supply chain ignorance, and brand damage affects all companies Seizing Opportunity The agricultural and energy impacts of climate change converge to bolster new industries such as Carbon Capture & Storage, Energy Efficiency, and Future Grid. Example: Rio Tinto’s now has enhanced Social License to Operate built on community consultation, an unexpected opportunity. Food for Thought (or Indigestion) Some of the most egregious abuses barely register in stock prices. Examples include Chevron and the Ecuadorian disgrace, Shell and the wasting of the Niger River Delta, and Monsanto and the war on small farmers. Discussion question: If it doesn’t hurt the stock price, does it matter? The Big $6 Million Question Does SRI create outperformance? It can, and it’s been demonstrated. But it is incredibly difficult to evaluate, as no two approaches are quite alike. Generally, companies that report on sustainability slightly outperform, but it is a tall order to isolate any single variable to explain stock price movement.

Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! ABOUT: Somalia is the most corrupt in the world, Denmark the least, while America's falling score is a 'red flag', according to a global corruption watchdog.Transparency International highlighted Hungary and the United States in their Corruption Perceptions Index for 2018, with America being knocked from the top 20 'cleanest' list.Trump's America lost four points and dropped out of the top 20 least corrupt nations for the first time since 2011, while Hungary's politics has taken on more autocratic overtones, according to the researchers.'A four point drop in the CPI score is a red flag and comes at a time when the US is experiencing threats to its system of checks and balance, as well as an erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power,' the Berlin-based organization said.'If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally -this is a bipartisan issue that requires a bipartisan solution.' Zoe Reiter, the watchdog's acting representative to the US, said they had serious concerns over the Trump administration but that corrupution had been a mounting problem for years.'Conflict of interest wasn't a new problem, but it was illuminated in its glory when you have someone who is basically breaking norms.'Trump is a symptom not a cause.His presidency is illuminating some of the problems.'

It has been the ruling party of post-apartheid South Africa on the national level, beginning with the election of Nelson Mandela in the 1994 election. Today, the ANC remains the dominant political party in South Africa, winning every election since 1994. Cyril Ramaphosa, the incumbent President of South Africa, has served as leader of the ANC since 18 December 2017.Founded on 8 January 1912 by John Langalibalele Dube in Bloemfontein as the South African Native National Congress (SANNC), its primary mission was to give voting rights to black and mixed-race Africans and, from the 1940s, to end apartheid. The ANC originally attempted to use nonviolent protests to end apartheid, however, the Sharpeville massacre resulted in the deaths of 69 black Africans and contributed to deteriorating relations with the South African government. On 8 April 1960, the administration of Charles Robberts Swart, banned the ANC and forced the party to leave South Africa. After the ban, the ANC formed the Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) to fight against apartheid utilizing guerrilla warfare and sabotage. On 3 February 1990, State President F. W. de Klerk lifted the ban on the ANC and released Nelson Mandela on 11 February 1990. On 17 March 1992, the apartheid referendum was passed by the voters removing apartheid and allowing the ANC to run in the 1994 election. Since the 1994 election the ANC has performed better than 60% in all general elections, including the most recent 2014 election.

It is bordered by Mozambique to its northeast and South Africa to its north, west and south. The country and the Swazi people take their names from Mswati II, the 19th-century king under whose rule Swazi territory was expanded and unified.At no more than 200 kilometres (120 mi) north to south and 130 kilometres (81 mi) east to west, Eswatini is one of the smallest countries in Africa; despite this, its climate and topography are diverse, ranging from a cool and mountainous highveld to a hot and dry lowveld. The population is primarily ethnic Swazis, whose language is siSwati. They established their kingdom in the mid-18th century under the leadership of Ngwane III; the present boundaries were drawn up in 1881 in the midst of the Scramble for Africa. After the Second Boer War, Swaziland was a British protectorate from 1903 until it regained its independence on 6 September 1968. On 19 April 2018, the official English name was changed from Kingdom of Swaziland to Kingdom of Eswatini, mirroring its Swazi name.The government is an absolute diarchy, ruled jointly by Ngwenyama ("King") Mswati III and Ndlovukati ("Queen Mother") Ntfombi Tfwala since 1986. The former is the administrative head of state and appoints the country's prime ministers and a number of representatives of both chambers (the Senate and House of Assembly) in the country's parliament, while the latter is the national head of state, serving as keeper of the ritual fetishes of the nation and presiding during the annual Umhlanga rite. Elections are held every five years to determine the House of Assembly and the Senate majority. The current constitution was adopted in 2005. Umhlanga, held in August/September, and incwala, the kingship dance held in December/January, are the nation's most important events.Eswatini is a developing country with a small economy. With a GDP per capita of $9,714, it is classified as a country with a lower-middle income. As a member of the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), its main local trading partner is South Africa; in order to ensure economic stability, Eswatini's currency, the lilangeni, is pegged to the South African rand. Eswatini's major overseas trading partners are the United States and the European Union. The majority of the country's employment is provided by its agricultural and manufacturing sectors. Eswatini is a member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union, the Commonwealth of Nations and the United Nations. The Swazi population faces major health issues: HIV/AIDS and, to a lesser extent, tuberculosis are widespread. It is estimated that 26% of the adult population is HIV-positive. As of 2018, Eswatini has the 12th lowest life expectancy in the world, at 58 years. The population of Eswatini is fairly young, with a median age of 20.5 years and people aged 14 years or younger constituting 37.5% of the country's total population. The present population growth rate is 1.2%.
