With less than a week to go for the Clean Business Ekurhuleni, incorporating the Green Business Seminar, time's running out for those interested to attend who habve not booked their seats.
The event, which is sponsored by PPC Cement, will take place next week on 24 and 25 July during Sustainability Week at the Sandton International Convention Centre,
Highlights include the City of Ekurhuleni's sustainability strategy (which won it the Greenest Municipality award recently); a panel on governance and ethics by the Special Investigating Unit (it was an SIU audit that helped CoE develop its strategy); and a panel dealing with "a model for increased profitability through greener production" facilitated by the NCPC-SA, preceded by a case study of cleaner production in action courtesy of Impahla Clothing.
Clean business implies efficiency, transparency and sustainability. The City of Ekurhuleni has made great strides towards incorporating its principles into its development plan and was announced Greenest Municipality out of 111 participating municipalities by the National Department of Environmental Affairs during the Greenest Municipality Competition (GMC) held in Durban recently, thanks to the dedicated efforts of various departments within the municipality. Of course Ekurhuleni is also South Africa’s manufacturing, transport and logistics hub, providing a unique opportunity for business and local government to unite behind a common vision; some of the largest manufacturers in South Africa are based in Ekurhuleni and are already finding that clean business is good business.
Attendance at Clean Business Ekurhuleni is free but strictly by invitation only. Seats are limited. To secure your place, contact Phillippa Elford on 021 681 7000 or email her at
