SSouth African Tourism has pulled out all the stops to ensure that this year's Meetings Africa is environmentally friendly in line with its mandate to promote sustainable tourism.

Acting CEO Nombulelo Guliwe said that for Meetings  Africa 2024, South African Tourism had partnered with an entity to independently assess the event's sustainability aspect.

Delegates at this year's event are encouraged to go digital, including further using the App to limit reliance on paper. Other improvements at the event include easy access points for recycling. 

"We have a responsibility to ensure that our current needs do not have a negative impact on the environment," she said.

Guliwe was speaking during a discussion on sustainability, adding that in another demonstration of a commitment to sustainability, Meetings Africa features the sustainability village, which features locally produced goods.

Regarding sharing best practices on sustainability, Guliwe said information sharing was critical.
