GIFSA was founded in 2012 as the Southern African hub of the CEIP network. The establishment of GIFSA was initiated by Cullinan & Associates Inc, a specialist environmental and green business law firm and Enact International, a consultancy specialising in environmental governance. The hub is currently operated Cullinan & Associates.
Participation in CEIP enables GIFSA to share in global environmental expertise and opportunities for trade and investment in this fast growing and vital sector.
As well as GIFSA, CEIP currently has member hubs in the United Kingdom (London and Wales), Ghana and Nigeria and the network continues to expand rapidly.
