Robust GBCSA gears up for next step

April 02, 2020

In 2020 and beyond the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) is looking to increase its remarkable 13-year impact in South Africa.

By tying climate change mitigation efforts to positively impact all of South African society the GBCSA, a member of the World Green Building Council, is playing an increasingly influential role in our nation.

GBCSA board appoint interim CEO
CEO Dorah Modise is completing a phased exit plan and handover to GBCSA Board Transition committee. Applicants are currently being shortlisted.

The GBCSA Board Transition committee has appointed Pardon Mutasa as acting General Manager for this period with GBCSA founder, Bruce Kerswill, stepping up to provide additional leadership support.

GBCSA gearing up for a new chapter
During Dorah’s leadership, GBCSA certified projects, including Green Star, EDGE and Net Zero certifications, grew from 230 projects to 520 projects. And the organisation has moved from a BEE level 8 in 2016 to a level 4 with a target of level 1 during the next two years, as well as becoming a council member of the property sector charter council.

Through the assistance of JP Morgan she has overseen the training and integration of more than 90 SMMEs into the green building space, increasing the pool of green building providers in the market.

Dorah’s legacy of proactivity can be seen in the GBCSA sound financial footing, staffed by a team of experienced and technically skilled individuals who are passionate to continue transforming South Africa’s built environment.

Future GBCSA operations, based from one location will reduce building, transport and other related environmental impacts of the organisation. This point served as a key motivator for the decision to consolidate to a Cape Town-based office. GBCSA assures members and stakeholders that our board, management and various teams are well equipped to fulfill their different mandated responsibilities, and are preparing well to hit the ground running in Cape Town.
