Yesterday, Lenasia in Johannesburg hosted its 33rd Gandhi Walk - Lenasia (with special appearances of South African President Cyril Ramaphosa & Reverend Jesse Jackson)!

What makes this event even more special is the organiser's wish to turn the walk into one of Johannesburg's greenest walks! In line with this year's #GoGreen theme, featuring a plethora of green initiatives, they offset 15 tonnes of carbon emissions via the Wonderbag​.

This offset project fights climate change and improves the lives of people in vulnerable communities by providing them with non-electricity heat-retention cookers that minimise the use of polluting and harmful fuel sources.

Yesterday, Climate Neutral Group hosted its first #CarbonTaxEssentials breakfast at The Maslow Hotel in Sandton. The objective: helping companies make sense of what South Africa's carbon tax rules are all about, why they are necessary and how businesses can reduce their tax bills by, for instance, offsetting their carbon footprint. Speakers included senior carbon advisor Silvana Claassen, and country director Franz Rentel, and our MD Rene Toet.

It was a hugely successful and more importantly climate neutral event: the Maslow, in partnership with our GreenDreams programme, is offsetting the emissions generated by its conferencing facilities!

We are planning to organize more of these discussions in due course. Watch this space!
