TGI Group champions green and digital job creation for sustainable development

As part of its strategic HR initiatives, TGI Group, a leader in sustainability and innovation, is advancing its commitment to green and digital job creation .

This was highlighted by Akinkunle Akinpelu, Director of Group Human Resources, TGI Group, during the “Green and Digital Jobs: Expanding the Frontiers and Pragmatic Approach towards the Creation of Decent Jobs” panel at the Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) Summit in Abuja recently.

“TGI is deeply committed to sustainability, which is a core element of our HR strategy as well,” said Akinpelu. “In the past five years, we’ve hired hundreds of young professionals worldwide to tackle environmental challenges. Our teams work on projects ranging from afforestation and water management to energy-saving initiatives.”

TGI Group is also making significant strides in digital transformation.
“We constantly employ world-class solutions to overhaul our processes where necessary,” Akinpelu explained. “This digital shift not only enhances efficiency but empowers a new generation of professionals bringing fresh solutions and perspectives.”

Highlighting TGI’s innovative approach, Akinpelu showcased the Group’s efforts in generating renewable energy. “Our 250,000 metric tonnes rice plant in Argungu, Kebbi State operates without fossil fuels. Also, we recycle rice husks to generate power. By 2025, several of our factories will tow the same line, thereby reducing carbon emissions and promoting cleaner air.”

The panel, which featured industry leaders including Mr. Olasunkanmi Adenuga, MD of Workforce Nigeria, Dr Afiz Oluwatoyin, DG Industrial Training Fund (ITF), Dr Vanessa Phala, Director, International Labour Organisation (ILO) Abuja, Dr Eugene Itua, MD of Natural Eco Capita, and Dr Emmanuel Okeleji, CEO Seamless HR, emphasized the critical role of green and digital jobs in Nigeria’s economic development.

TGI Group is at the forefront of this movement, demonstrating that economic growth can go hand-in-hand with environmental stewardship and digital innovation.
