City, businesses in enviro alliance

  • Written by 

Following the Business Seminar held on Monday at the Standard Bank head office in Simmonds Street,the City of Joburg is set to work closely with businesses in conserving the environment.

 

The city and businesses committed to work more closely in caring for the environment. The seminar provided a platform for the city, the National Business Initiative (NBI) and Standard Bank to discuss climate change as part of the build-up to the C40 Climate Change Summit to take place at the Sandton Convention Centre on 4-6 February.

Joburg Mayor Parks Tau praised businesses for taking climate change seriously. “From your most recent Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Report released in December, the response rate of South African companies is the second highest in the world, with a remarkable 83%.”

He added that unlike cities in the developed world, which grapple with issues of mitigating climate change, the developing world has to deal with adaptation.

“Differentiating two forms of adaptation, acclimation and resilience, can assist with making the right investment decisions,”  he said.

Mayor Tau announced that the City has been working with C40s Measurement and Planning Initiative in partnership with Siemens and the World Research Institute to conduct its first-ever citywide greenhouse gas inventory and baseline.”

Derek Batte of the Johannesburg Business Forum commended the city for involving business in service delivery.
