Join us on 12 April in Sandton for our #CarbonTaxEssentials breakfast discussion. This is THE event you should attend if you are seeking comprehensive, easy-to-digest information (and guidance) on what the new Carbon Tax rules could mean for your company and other businesses - in terms of tax liability AND opportunities.

The regulation of carbon emissions in South Africa is advancing rapidly and is becoming increasingly complex. This includes the publication of the GHG Reporting Regulations in April 2017, the publication of the Pollution Prevention Plans Regulations in July 2017, and more recently, the release of the Carbon Tax Bill in December 2017. This law is set to come into effect 1 January 2019.

Comments from the public on the Draft Carbon Tax Bill included that it is complex and therefore remains a challenge for organisations in terms of assessing the impact on their bottom-line.


Climate Neutral Group will host an interactive breakfast-workshop at The Maslow Hotel in Sandton on 12 April (08:00-10:00) which will focus on assisting companies to understand the implications of South Africa’s proposed carbon tax law and offset legislation.

Participants are then invited to engage in an informal discussion about the topic, allowing them to identify concerns and ask questions on carbon tax-related matters.

These essential topics include the various carbon tax allowances that exist, what companies must consider in order to benefit from the Carbon Tax, and what mechanisms exist to reduce their tax liability.

Other topics on the agenda include a brief analysis of the various financial and tax implications, which greenhouse gas-emitting activities result in carbon tax payments, and the relationship between the proposed carbon tax and the GHG Reporting Regulations.

We will also have a closer look at how offsets can reduce a company’s carbon tax liability. Finally, we will demonstrate various ways on how companies can calculate their carbon tax obligation.

The @CityofCT has launched waste-to-power projects at 2 landfills with a 3rd on being under development. This is great news! Projects like these prevent methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, from being emitted in the atmosphere - fighting climate change! https://t.co/7zrKmimGjY

Study: the impact of humanity's carbon footprint may bring an unsettling era of extreme heat waves to the U.S. by the year 2020

It's #WorldWaterDay today! Did you know that by offsetting its carbon footprint via the @WonderbagSA , the @sanlam @CTMarathon (SA's first climate neutral sports event) is fighting climate change AND saving 1.7 million liters of water per year?

Shocking to think that over the last 25 years, a forest area the size of South Africa has disappeared. Read how the #re/insurance industry can make a big difference. #IntlForestDay #buildingsocietalresilience #swissre #climatechange https://t.co/ggjoFAjDQZ

Water scarcity and droughts are climate change impacts, and as a water-stressed region South Africa should reflect on living a 'water-less life' at the beginning of National Water Week https://t.co/eluPjjzZ7X #WaterScarcity #NationalWaterWeek #ClimateChange
