Edward Mungai is leading the push for clean technologies in Kenya. His organization, Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC), provides company incubation, capacity building and financing to entrepreneurs developing innovative solutions in energy, water, and agribusiness. Currently, the KCIC supports 133 green businesses, which directly employ 2,100 people. These companies provide 80,000 people with low-carbon sources of energy, mitigating more than 250,000 tons of carbon dioxide, and deliver clean water to 8,000 households. To amplify this impact, Mungai plans to develop an Africa Center for Sustainability Leadership at the Strathmore Business School in Nairobi. The initiative will engage leading international organizations and the private sector to develop future generations of leaders committed to advancing Africa’s corporate sustainability practices.
