Goldman Sachs: Sustainable Finance Series – Part 3


How Goldman Sachs helped enable improved sustainability of the food and agriculture value chain in Kenya.

Our approach to climate change encompasses a holistic view of commercial solutions to mitigate climate risk and capture opportunities that promote environmental progress across growth areas in clean energy, sustainable transport, food and agriculture, waste and materials, and ecosystem services. 

Twiga Foods is a Kenyan end-to-end distributor of fresh and processed food. Through Goldman Sachs’ investment in the company, Twiga Foods is developing proprietary technology and logistical assets to support its distribution system, which enables improved sustainability of the food and agriculture value chain and allows farmers to be paid within 48 hours via mobile platforms. The investment is laying the groundwork for expansion to cities across Africa, helping to drive sustainable access to lower-cost, higher-quality food and improved economic security for farmers.
