The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business (www.CanadaAfrica.ca) applauds Cypher Environmental Ltd. and B2Gold for their outstanding leadership in environmental sustainability, welcoming both companies to Africa Accelerating 2023, opened by the Prime Minister of Canada and attended by senior African and Canadian leaders.
The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business is proud to congratulate Cypher Environmental, whose Cypher Green Roads® initiative (https://apo-opa.info/3rLmQT6) has been recognized as a Canada’s Clean50 2024 Top Project award winner (https://apo-opa.info/46EKjnM) – presented by Delta Management Group and Canada’s Clean50.
Todd Burns, CEO of Cypher Environmental will address the Official Closing Reception of Africa Accelerating 2023, the annual 3-day conference organized by The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. This year’s event opened on Tuesday, October 10th with opening remarks from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“The award recognizes Cypher’s commitment to clean technology and serves as a real-world model of Canada-Africa collaboration, while accelerating both trade and investment,” says Paula Caldwell St-Onge, Chair of the Board of The Canada-Africa Chamber.
“We are thrilled the Cypher Green Roads initiative was recognized for its impact, innovation, and its ability to inspire and inform on clean technology, especially within the mining industry. The program is global in scope with our first Green Roads project outside of Canada successfully undertaken with B2Gold (www.B2Gold.com) in Mali, West Africa as part of their resettlement of the village of Fadougou (https://apo-opa.info/3PGcKL6) – now known as New Fadougou,” says Todd Burns, CEO of Cypher Environmental.
While the resettlement was considered a success, the residents were plagued with dust from the unpaved main road going through the village. “Our Cypher Green Roads program, along with B2Gold’s commitment to Social Responsibility initiatives allowed us to bring an innovative cleantech solution to New Fadougou to solve their road dust challenges,” adds Burns.
The impact of the initiative was warmly received by the residents. “The dust bothers us a lot here, especially for our food products at the market. Since the end of the (road) work, we have a better living environment,” comments one New Fadougou resident and community leader. “The advantage is, first of all, better health for us and for the children. Thanks to these developments, we are free to move around, which was practically impossible before. We thank them for that.”
“We are proud to have Cypher Environmental as a member and sponsor of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, joining us on the back of their outstanding display of market-driven solutions to key environmental issues of the day,” says Garreth Bloor, President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. “Canada-Africa success stories are a model that can be replicated globally, not just across Canada and African markets.”
“Like Cypher Environmental, we as a chamber would like to extend our sincere gratitude to B2Gold for making this project possible. As members of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, both companies exemplify the values, excellence and commitment to genuine partnership which is vital to the type of success that is to the benefit of all who are involved and impacted,” added Bloor.
