Title Going green: An SMME perspective
 
Creator Viviers, Suzette
 
Subject — —
Description The purpose of this research was to investigate the level of environmental awareness and engagement among local SMME owners/managers. The views of 250 SMME owners/managers in the Nelson Mandela Bay region were obtained by means of a survey questionnaire. The findings indicate that respondents are becoming more aware of the impact of their actions on the natural environment and engage in actions to reduce electricity use, recycle paper and replace hazardous materials. Most respondents, however, view environmental management as costly and consider stricter environmental legislation and enforcement, as well as tax incentives, as effective measures to promote “greener” business practices among South African businesses.Key words and phrases: Environmental management; environmental legislation; “going green”; SMMEs; environmental tax incentives
