Acknowledgements & credits

Without the advice, donations and support from our community and other interested parties, the Joburg Green Map would still be a mere dream. We’d therefore like to make special mention and thank the following kind people and organisations for their assistance:

Website development

A big thanks to Trillian Capital Asset Management for funding the initial costs for getting this website live. We’re very grateful for helping us take this first step on our green map journey.

Legal advice

We are extremely grateful to Werksmans Attorneys for giving us much needed legal advice and guidance in setting up the Joburg Green Map.


As you will have noticed, we have a range of great pictures gracing the headers of this website. Some were taken by ourselves, but a few select were graciously provided by the following people and organisations:

Solar Panels at the Johannesburg Zoo, installed by Project 90 x 2030. This 3.75 kW Solar PV system forms part of a renewable energy demo site installed at the Zoo’s visitors centre - one of many the Project 90 x 2030 has installed across the country. Also installed was a biogas installation and the cheetah enclosure's electric fence was converted to a solar powered system. Visit the Project 90 x 2030 website or follow them on facebook for more information.
