(Ecofin Agency) - Construction Company Eiffage announced the launch of a platform dedicated to carbon and climate in Senegal. Called Sekoya Africa, the initiative aims to support the continent's energy transition, according to Missira Keita, the company's director of social responsibility.
Sekoya Africa will facilitate the establishment of a low-carbon industrial sector adapted to the continent's climate challenges. “The aim is to facilitate the identification of new and existing solutions and to promote interaction between all stakeholders,” Keita said.
He pointed out that Eiffage is also planning measures to finance internal innovations to accelerate the implementation of low-carbon solutions upstream. The launch of Sekoya Africa will allow a large-scale application of the solutions found while leveraging available innovation opportunities.
“Eiffage intends to be exemplary in its own emissions, but also to support its customers in their own efforts to reduce their carbon footprint, by developing alternative solutions and by deploying these solutions as much as possible in its offers,” concluded the manager.
