The Heritage Environmental Management Company was first established in 2001 as an environmental rating initiative for the hospitality industry in South Africa. Our first certification was awarded to the Sandton Convention Centre in 2002 to coincide with the 2002 Earth Summit which was held in Johannesburg.
Since then, the company has expanded its certification categories and product range to provide certification solutions to all facets of the service industry including hotels and accommodation; game lodges and resorts; zoos and aquaria; meetings and events; golf courses; residential estates, banking, retail businesses and business services. Heritage is currently being applied by over 150 businesses across eight African countries and is recognised as the leading certification brand in Africa.
At Heritage we are committed to enabling corporate sustainability and continual environmental improvement in the services sector through the application of globally competitive management systems, procedures and operational practice.
