WHO WE ARE
In order to successfully operate and invest in Africa or Asia, an understanding and insight into the constantly evolving legislative requirements, the complex socio-political context and diversity of cultures, and the varied and sensitive natural environments is needed.
IBIS is a premier emerging market sustainability consultancy that helps companies unlock value by improving their environmental and social performance. We provide a unique combination of executive management and on-the-ground expertise supported by our extensive experience working with multinational companies and local clients across Africa and Asia.
We took inspiration in naming our business after the North African mythological God of Wisdom, Justice and Knowledge – the Sacred IBIS, Thoth. Our logo is informed by the classic V-shaped flight formation of the IBIS bird. An example of efficiency and teamwork, it symbolises for us the symbiotic relationship between our clients, colleagues and the African continent, where we were founded.
