The downloadable print version of this book is available here. However, should you wish to make use of the on-line toolkit, along with all of its various links, start here.

The on-line facility also links to case studies which can be downloaded.

This initiative was championed by the Cape Town City Council with the help of various commercial sponsors, and was actually launched in 2013 but the material is still relevant and usable. It covers many bases and is a very useful way for businesses to start the process. It needs more depth to sustain an initiative of this nature but there are links to sites and organisations that can assist with taking the programme to more mature levels, once the basics are achieved.
