In May, we hosted our annual 7th AGM. This year the event moved beyond a standard AGM format and instead we hosted our inaugural Annual Green Dialogues Event, themed as A Beyond Green Discussion – Companies and Consumers moving towards a proactive green approach.
The theme allowed us to focus on green growth and active citizenship. TGRC invited key thought leaders in the greening space to present their views and findings regarding the topic. Dion Chang, renowned trend analyst and Dr Marco Lotz, Nedbank’s Sustainability Carbon Specialist hosted engaging discussions regarding the transition towards greener practice both in the consumer and business space. Green authority, meteorologist and green lifestyle personality Simon Gear, was the MC for the event.
Our CEO also presented some of the key highlights of the past fiscal year to the attendees who included shareholders, media, Government and municipal representatives. Hosting this event as a Green Dialogue rather than traditional AGM allowed for interactive environment for both the speakers and guests alike.
The Beyond Green Discussion was well received by the media and guests and received great publicity in The Times and Citizen newspapers, numerous online platforms and community papers.
