Green Thursday - Management
The construction industry is steadily growing in South Africa. However, not all construction practices are designed to cultivate an environment that is sustainable and healthy for both present and future generations. If these construction practices are continued, the growth in this sector could be seen as detrimental to the health of the South African environment and the world at large. In light of this predicament, management systems have been established in order to bring about sustainable practices in the construction industry. One organization that aims to deal with this issue is the Green Building Council in South Africa, also known as the GBCSA. Through different avenues, the GBCSA supports and facilitates environmentally- conscious projects in order to advance the movement towards a greener economy.
