At Jumia, Sustainability equals strategy

Today we released our 2021 Sustainability report. It is the first time we have captured our Sustainability actions in a document. Someone said to me that after reading our Sustainability report she understood our corporate strategy. That was when the penny dropped for me! She is right.

Sustainability is at the core of our business, and when I talk about Sustainability at Jumia I am describing our corporate mission and strategy at the same time.


Take for example the millions of consumers who live in rural areas with limited assortment of goods to buy.



The few goods they find are unaffordable because they are often priced significantly higher than in the cities. They are already experiencing structural inequality compared to people in the cities.


We provide a platform for these consumers to access the same goods available to city dwellers and at the same prices.


We provide a logistics network to deliver orders to them.


We ensure our app consumes very minimal data because they cannot afford high internet bills.


We support them with agents who explain things in local languages.


In 2021, 27% of our deliveries were to rural areas.


By doing all these we are reducing inequality but is this Sustainability or is it Strategy? Clearly it is both.

There are so many ways that Jumia impacts lives and creates opportunities for people in Africa. To learn more about this, go to ESG 2021 Report and read it yourself.


Sustainability is a journey and one year is not enough to do everything we want to do. But I am very happy that what we have done so far matters and means a lot to our stakeholders.
