In the past 18 months chemicals and explosives company AECI has spent R200 million on going green, and CEO Mark Dytor says this is just the beginning.

AECI’s business segments are made up of mining, water, agri-health and chemicals and its footprint stretches across Africa, Europe Southeast Asia, North and South America and Australia. And after 97 years in business, the group says it is finding more responsible ways to manufacture its products. 

"It’s important that AECI, as a global business, [should] be seen as a sustainable business and people who are serious about environment and climate change," Dytor said.
