Sustainable Solutions

Sustainability – buzzword or business savvy?

“Sustainability” has become a buzzword which is differently understood in different contexts. The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines sustainable as “conserving an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources”; in a business sense sustainability refers to assessing a product’s value chain throughout its life cycle so as to identify potential opportunities for changing production operations in ways that are beneficial to both the organisation and the environment.

JG Afrika’s sustainability division comprises energy, greening and waste management specialists with many years of experience in all aspects of integrated environmental resource management (i.e. water, waste, energy, raw material optimisation), pollution prevention and waste minimisation at source through the systematic and proactive application of cleaner production (CP) principles and environmental footprinting to establish existing and future baselines disclosing the true cumulative impact of either products and processes or entire organisations.

The multidisciplinary team has been involved in varied projects which demonstrate their ability to assess the value chain and, based on life-cycle assessment principles, identify potential opportunities for intervention strategies, cost these opportunities and then calculate the required payback periods. This illustrates the team’s sound understanding of all the training, strategic, technical and basic engineering tasks at hand. We undertake these projects with the aim of identifying opportunities to optimise processes and improve efficiency as a contribution to finding solutions to address energy, waste, water and wastewater management.
