Clay brick construction is increasingly being recognised as a vital component of green building in the ongoing quest to find solutions that eliminate or meaningfully reduce adverse impacts of development on the environment and its occupants.

One of the most rigorous and specialised processes for the mining, industrial, manufacturing, and commercial development sectors is environmental licencing and compliance assurance. I-CAT Environmental Solutions offers an ‘environmental masterplan’ in terms of the resulting compliance, auditing, and monitoring requirements.

The public participation process for SA’s Integrated Resources Plan 2016 update report (IRP2016) is an ideal opportunity for South African citizens to sway the long-term investment choices that will serve the country up to 2050. “We don’t often have an opportunity to influence government policy, so this is a significant moment, not just for the energy industry, but for all South Africans,” said Brenda Martin, Chair of SAREC.

The theme of the GGC2017, ‘Public Infrastructure leading through Innovation and Green Technologies’, will challenge decision makers in government and industry experts alike to apply new thinking and the adoption of green technologies in reshaping the built environment industry. Essentially it’s about bringing together active collaboration and co-operation to fast track green infrastructure investments within the public infrastructure portfolio.  

There’s no life without water. Deprived of water all living things die – quickly. Water is becoming one of our most scarce resources due to the increased likelihood of extended droughts, the impacts of climate change and rapid population growth, particularly in cities.

While South Africa continues to move towards a green trend when developing new buildings, the real test of sustainability begins on occupation. If a building is green, but is occupants are not, the trade-off will most likely lead to diluted sustainability results.
