The future is Green!
Whether or not the SA economy is being driven into the Green Sector as a result of mainstream acceptance of the theory of man-made greenhouse gases causing environmental destruction, or finally by the understanding of the fact that there are too many of us consuming too many resources too fast, the reality is that the Green Economy is now in play!
By now you are probably nearing the end of your 2012 planning and budgetary cycle but now comes the reality of providing resources to put action to the plans.
WHAT IS ON YOUR GREEN CHECKLIST FOR 2012?
What green or sustainability plans have you committed your organisation to implementing? Or perhaps you wanted to move your organisation into a more sustainable position but due to budget constraints, had to remove this part of your strategy.
They say that Rome, wasn't built in a day and many would state that its because there wasn't a woman in charge or at the helm!
.... and for those of you males who are reading this shaking your head, here are a few Q&A's for you, which are certain to stop you head shaking and rather cause your jaw to drop:
Q/ What is a LOHAS
Going Green is not making a few, or even several, efforts to change and then reverting back to your old ways after a few months. It is the composition of numerous ideas that are developed in a comprehensive Sustainability Plan.
The Green Path program will guide your company in developing a tailored sustainability plan to be implemented over a period of time. Within the sustainability plan are hundreds of great and sensible ideas that help the company function more efficiently and save money.
The answer to this is really straightforward.
You see our Certified Green Consultants™ are specially trained in the art greening businesses. Their knowledge-base on green & sustainable issues is certainly way out in front, they posses the skill to seek out areas of improvement and eliminate waste (energy, water, material) and have access to tools which no others have in South Africa today.
The Green Path for Cities is the most powerful green program ever seen in South Africa. It is based upon the motive of transparency and maximised participation. You see greening organisations one by one, although important, will not bring about the paradigm shift we so desperately need in greening our environment.
Sustainable Cities will only be brought about by programs that consumers, business leaders, communities & city leaders alike, find that offer:
Too often, businesses take a shallow approach to their Green program. The process should start with a review of current progress (baseline assessment), and grow into a step-by-step program of environmental improvement.
This is our mission. Changing the face of the the South African business community is a huge task, but we have the growing resources to do the job as we add to our national team of Green consultants.
