Tony Elumelu, the Chairman of Heirs Holding and the Founder, Tony Elumelu Foundation has joined other global leaders and captains of industry in New York, United States of America, to weigh in on climate change issues.
“I have just arrived in New York to join other global and industry leaders to attend the United Nations General Assembly (#UNGA77), the annual high-level debate that convenes global leaders. There, I will further spread our messages of impact, transformation, and Africapitalism in various meetings” he said
“As Africans, we see the impact of climate change every day; as leaders, it is incumbent on us to show the way; as Africapitalists, at Heirs Holdings, we demonstrate that businesses can do well and do good” he wrote on his Facebook page.
He further wrote: “As the world rightly focuses on climate change, it is critical that African voices are not just heard but set the agenda. That is why we both want to lead with our own programmes, across our businesses and philanthropy; and be present at the highest level in the debate.”
