Where are the Opportunities?
Government is driving “the Green Economy” through multiple national departments such as Energy, Water, Environment, Public Enterprises, the DTi, and major municipalities, with new buildings being commissioned ‘green’, and many existing buildings being retrofitted. Large South African corporations are also commissioning some of the greenest buildings in the world, with the number and variety of green buildings at an all-time high. Residential buildings too are going green, with the price of electricity, water, and waste services on the rise households are seeking self-sufficiency in these areas.
The opportunities for green building product and service companies are linked to this new desire on the part of savvy project owners to become greener. Now is the time to be promoting your brand in this exciting space.
