Promoting greener businesses

Sasol ChemCity joined the mayor and other executives to launch phase one of the innovative Eco Industrial Park in Sasolburg recently.

Sasolburg, being in the middle of the Vaal Triangle posed for the perfect area and will give a constant supply of different utilities, support services as well as basic infrastructure to assist the environment as well as successfully producing goods.

This was done after thorough research into the vast amount of job opportunities and therefore sustainable living possibilities it could provide as well as being able to function at an extremely environmentally friendly pace.  With the aim of functioning without leaving a carbon footprint, certain vital components and mechanisms are used such as alternate building technologies, solar geysers, solar panels and many different environmentally friendly materials and tools.

Sasol ChemCity is further in the process of establishing a mixed use business incubator which will be designed to provide a vast range of business development support services, shared resources and infrastructure to be able to support all new businesses and the growth rate of existing small businesses as well with its main purpose to link existing large companies and different training and capacity building programs.
