Corporate sustainability practices typically fall under the umbrella of ESG, i.e., environment, social, and governance practices, which represent the three pillars of sustainable investing.
Increasing water scarcity is one of South Africa’s greatest challenges. The local demand for water supply in South Africa has increased, making the effective governance of available water resources to achieve water security and equitable allocation of water resources more difficult. Companies have to improve their environmental footprint by reducing their carbon emissions and switching to new more efficient technologies.
In order to address some of the challenges of effective water governance in South Africa, MEB has developed mechanisms for the efficient transition to better and advanced water and energy innovations, that can be scaled up as needed.
Sound governance is also essential for the achievable of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the country. New water technology adaptation in times of climate change is critical to safe-guard progress made in water for heightened economic activity, energy efficiency, and poverty alleviation.
