Vivo Energy is one of Africa’s leading downstream businesses, supported by a sizeable and strategically located logistics infrastructure. The business specialises in fuels and lubricants, but provides other downstream services.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people.
