In an effort to positively impact society as an organization, James Cubitt Developments has connected its projects with investments that have a social impact. This is because we believe that businesses are not only vehicles to make a profit but also to ensure social progress by tackling social challenges.

Our impact investments include some interests (and potential reference programmes or organisations) in areas of vocational training (Siemens), technology-based solutions (Iguana Fix), and Brandless’s customer message of ending hunger. But currently, we are expanding our scope to make direct investments in more impact options in critical areas of the Nigerian economy.

To accomplish this feat, we have first identified different priority sectors and sub-sectors in Nigeria requiring impact investing. We identified the opportunities for impact and gaps in each prioritised sector and then developed specific programmes and initiatives to address the identified opportunities and gaps.

Using this open-minded approach, James Cubitt is looking to harness the power of its business to build capacity for investing in varied social impact programmes while simultaneously creating a reliable vehicle for social change that will ensure better impact results in society.

Our social impact investment projects have allowed us the opportunity to challenge long-held beliefs that social and environmental issues should be addressed solely through philanthropic donations and that market investments should only be focused on achieving financial returns.

So, with each social impact investment we undertake, we strive to change this narrative. Our social impact investment projects provide investors with viable opportunities to advance social and environmental solutions while also generating financial returns.
