Abstract

Climate change, energy insecurity and increasing scarcity of resources are some of the major challenges faced in the South African economy. Although manufacturing industries show greater interest in sustainable production and adopting corporate social initiatives, and are innovating, an HSRC survey shows this does not always lead to environmental improvement, writes Cheryl Moses.
