AS part of the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium’s continuing efforts to improve its environmental management commitment, it recently launched the Green Hub initiative in partnership with The Waste Trade Company.

The initiative aims to engage and empower the community about suitable environmental practices through the conservation of resources. The overall vision is to reach out to the community and connect individuals, organisations and groups working with conservation to form a web of learning, sharing, action and opportunity.

The initiative will create and cultivate positive relationships with stakeholders through the appropriate management.

“The Green Hub initiative invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the heavy burden of pollution.

“It is call to action for all of us to come together to combat environmental challenges of our time.

“We also have a responsibility to ensure that the planet remains unspoilt for future generations,” said Mpho Mokonyama, Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium manager.

“This will not only be beneficial to the stadium but the community at large, as it will provide a platform which creates job opportunities, community engagement and alleviation of hunger through the envisaged vegetable garden. This strategic direction will ensure that the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium is used to its fullest potential.”

The first phase of the initiative will commence this month, where the groundwork will be prepared for a successful project.
