Wallet, Blanket, Sustainability.We say again:
If South Africa is serious about meeting their carbon emission commitments of 34% reduction, transparency in dealing with these issues needs to be addressed.
Governmental aligned organisations (DOE, SANERI, CEF, ESKOM, SABS etc.) are certainly falling foul.
This tender / expression of interest is indeed genuine and is in no way a scam.
Contractual arrangements do exist between SANERI and the Robben island Authorities.
By virtue of an open tender process, I fail to see how you substantiate a claim that there is a lack of transparency.
This project has featured in news articles, publications etc over the past year, and is known to active stakeholders.
I trust this addresses your concerns, but I am willing to engage with you directly should you have further queries.
