The Business Ethics Network-Africa

BEN-Africa was formed in 1999. The founding conviction of BEN-Africa is that by bringing together Africans who share an interest in business ethics, business ethics will be expanded on the African continent. BEN-Africa continues to thrive and stimulate the discourse on business ethics.

The value proposition of BEN-Africa is the ability of BEN-Africa to connect people through formal and informal networks, facilitate dialogue through the provision of forums to share ideas and build ethical capacity, and a platform to publish contemporary research on business ethics in Africa.

BEN-Africa facilitates interaction between its members in various ways. These include our annual BEN-Africa Conference, seminars, partner events, and creating dialogue on business ethics. The Networking Council serves as a focal contact point in African nations and regions, and fosters discourse and interaction between individual and organisational members and partners. The BEN-Africa website and various other social media platforms are extensively used as facilitators of ethics conversations.

BEN-Africa is committed to disseminate information, knowledge and expertise on business ethics to its members, primarily through our open-access, electronically published journal, the African Journal of Business Ethics (AJOBE), available at The journal is a South African Department of Higher Education accredited journal.

The APRM is often described as “Africa’s unique and innovative approach to governance” with the objective of improving governance dynamics at the local, national and continental levels.

The APRM was adopted by African Heads of State and Government as a systematic peer learning and self-assessment mechanism originating from the NEPAD foundational document, the “Declaration on Democracy, Political, Economic and Corporate Governance” adopted in Durban, South Africa in July 2002.

Institute of Directors Southern Africa

IODSA is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in developing countries.

IODSA, a member of the World Bank Group, advances economic development and improves the lives of people by encouraging the growth of the private sector in developing countries.

We achieve this by creating new markets, mobilizing other investors, and sharing expertise. In doing so, we create jobs and raise living standards, especially for the poor and vulnerable. Our work supports the World Bank Group's twin goals of ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.

IODSA was founded in 1956 on a bold idea: that the private sector has the potential to transform developing countries. Since then we've expanded to more than 100 countries, coining the term “emerging markets” and pioneering new markets such as sustainable bonds.

Namibia Stock Exchange

The Namibian Stock Exchange (“NSX”) is the only stock exchange in Namibia, with a total market capitalisation of US$ 145 billion as at end 2014, making it the second biggest exchange in Africa in those terms. The reason for this size is the large number of dual or secondary listings. The NSX actively pursues dual listings and focusses on ease of listings to diversify its market as well as deepen it with more local content. In recent years the NSX has added more sectors to our boards through various listings as well as commodity ETFs. The NSX has recently published the Corporate Governance Code for Namibia (“NamCode”) which is applicable on all listed companies as a replacement of the outdated King II compliance requirement. The IODSA co-authored the publication with the NSX.

The enhancement of the governance landscape has positively positioned Namibia on the African investment scene and resulted in the deepening of the Namibian capital markets as it opens our market to a larger international investing pool. Many more steps are required to truly open our markets, not least of which are the formalisation of our bond market and setting up a Central Securities Depository (CSD).

Within the Common Monetary Area the NSX is uniquely positioned as a stable and efficient market to address regional needs of Issuers as an alternative to the JSE.
