Measure to minimise human impact on the environment

South Africa’s new Carbon Tax Act No 15 of 2019 came into effect on 1 June. Climate change is undoubtedly the biggest challenge facing humankind and the primary objective of this carbon tax is to reduce greenhouse emission (GHG) in a sustainable and affordable manner. Construction World spoke to Hannes Meyer, AfriSam’s Cementitious Executive about this bill and how it effects AfriSam. Despite the cement industry being a carbon intensive industry, AfriSam has – for decades – been working relentlessly to minimise its impact on the environment.
