Tholoana Sustainable Development and Environmental Consultants

JA slide show
Welcome to Tholoana Consulting

Sustainability underpins environmental management because protecting and nurturing natural resources will ensure that we are able to reap the fruits of nature, while nurturing and preserving its renewable components for the benefit of future generations. This is the original meaning of sustainability. Therefore sustainable development is at the heart of the image that Tholoana seeks to be identified with. 

Millions of people in South Africa live below the poverty line, with little or no access to jobs or basic services such as water and health care.  The problem is particularly acute in rural South Africa, where high percentages of the populace are infected with HIV/Aids and are generally not equipped to harness nature's abundant resources. 
Government’s vision for eradicating poverty outlines job creation and poverty eradication as its key focus. However, this development must be occur in a sustainable manner if it is to provide not only for the present teeming population, but also for future generations. 

Tholoana Sustainable Development & Environmental Consultants was founded to contribute towards sustainable solutions that will create a platform for nurturing nature’s wealth and addressing the urgent need for faster service delivery in South Africa.
