INSTITUTE OF PUBLIC & ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS
The SLF delivers programming in the following tenets:
Our speakers are often senior leaders in large, well-known companies or leading topic experts in academia. These events invite our membership and other business professionals to engage in learning, discussion, and networking. These are typically evening, after-work events with light refreshments provided.
Our strategy councils are centred on specific themes and help professional gain insights into how strategic approaches in other industries can be applied to their own organisation.
Led by experts, this is a great way to build your network and knowledge related to your role, interests, and strategic objectives.
The Namibia Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (NIPEA) is a registered non-profit, think tank and training organization based in Swakopmund, Namibia. NIPEA's aim is to expand environmental information disclosure to allow communities to fully understand the hazards and risks in the surrounding environment, thus promoting widespread public participation in environmental governance.
Starting 2016, NIPEA has been working on promoting a regional / Namibia green supply chain by pushing large corporations to concentrate on procurement and the environmental performance of their suppliers. This ‘Namibia Green Choice Network’ consumer initiative looks at the environmental performance of manufacturing enterprises and calls on consumers and large scale brands, through the Brand Council of Namibia, to use their purchasing power to make green choices.
