GREENER FUTURES ACADEMY
Greener Futures Academy is a Non-Profit Organisation that seeks to add real value to the environmental sector, by developing future environmental leaders and equiping them with the necessary experience, skills and competencies to be made more employable. By supporting Greener Futures Academy, you can become a catalyst in the development of South Africa’s future Environmental leaders, all whilst obtaining B-BBEE Skills Development points and tax benefits to contribute towards the sustainability of your business.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
Based on the 2013 B-BBEE codes, a measured entity must achieve 40% of the targets set in the Skills Development element. Companies operating in South Africa have the objective to spend 3% or 6% of their Skills Development Levy (depending on Generic or Qualifying SMME status). Some businesses may struggle with this sort of outlay, and as such require the most efficient and effective spend. Furthermore, if such a spend is to be made, companies want to ensure that these funds are put to good use, and make a REAL difference.
