New technology in order to reduce the carbon footprint

Sustainability

PROGRAMMES

The company has an ongoing skills development programme where it identifies people within the local communities who with guidance and training can become a valuable asset to not only the company but the local community. The programme has incorporated offenders who have been released from prison as well as people with drug / alcohol addictions with our priority being on rehabilitation.

Further to the skills development programme we have an upliftment programme where we assist local people to establish their own businesses through our experience and financial contributions with many becoming successful business owners and sub-contractors.
