Our outreach work

GreenCape engages internally and externally, with local community-based organizations (CBOs) and

Three principles underpin our sustainable social initiatives at GreenCape:

  • Contributing our skills and time to community initiatives that are sustainable and empowering.
  • Adhering to sustainability principles internally, through our Waste@Home programme, procurement practices and energy efficiency measures.
  • Behaving ethically and fairly in interactions with stakeholders, surrounding community and people.

Youth tutoring

Some members of the GreenCape team are currently working with the IkamvaYouth programme in Atlantis. The team volunteer their time to tutor high school learners from Atlantis. For further information on the IkamvaYouth programme, please visit their website here.
