Corporates Operating in Africa

Africa’s rich natural resource base has provided the foundation for much of its income. Global demand for commodities, driven largely by economic growth in Asia, has accelerated the scale of natural resource extraction here. Of the 867 mineral extraction facilities that currently exist on the African continent, over 70% occur in elephant range states. These businesses and associated companies have local expertise, strong government relationships and significant resources. They therefore have the potential to significantly enhance conservation efforts on the ground for reversing the elephant poaching crisis and illegal wildlife trade.

Giants Club corporate members are recruited on an invitation-only basis and are selected on the basis of their potential to have a significant conservation impact.
