Women at the Forefront of Sustainability

Catherine Morris started Green Home in 2007 from her garage in Cape Town. The following year she invited an old friend of hers, Phindi Dlamini, to run the Gauteng branch. With a predominantly female staff, Green Home is a 100% woman owned and managed business.

The growth of women taking leadership roles in sustainability globally is testament to the turning point we find ourselves at. No longer can we continue with unsustainabletraditionally masculine business practices.

To regain balance, feminine values of holistic thinking, social sensitivity and empathy are required in positions of leadership now more than ever.

In recognition of women’s day Green Home would like to say thank you to all women, everywhere, working tirelessly to create a sustainable future.

Another world is not only possible, she’s on her way. Maybe many of us won’t be here to greet her, but on a quiet day, if I listen very carefully, I can hear her breathing” ~ Arundhati Roy.
