The word uvuna comes from the Zulu language and means “you reap”. We chose this as our company name as we believe that organisations which embrace the principles of sustainability in all aspects of their business will reap the rewards thereof. Reaping is not a unilateral process however, as it relies on the quality of the inputs. Businesses that invest in managing and embracing sustainability considerations will find that there are a number of significant business benefits that result. Some of these include improved relationships with governments and stakeholders; enhanced licence to operate; continuity of business processes; cost savings; improved reputation; and reduced environmental footprint to mention a few.
Uvuna Sustainability comprises individuals who have had extensive experience in managing sustainability issues on mining and industrial operations around the world. We have worked at the site / factory level as well as at business unit and corporate level in multinational companies. Our experienced professionals comprise Uvuna staff as well as a wide network of Associates who work with us on a project-by-project basis. Our goal is to assist our clients to embed sustainability considerations into their business in a manner that ensures that the business reaps the benefits of this integrated business model.
Our operating model allows us to be flexible and tailor our services to meet the needs of clients whilst maintaining the highest quality standards and pride in all the work we do.
