Promethium Carbon, in cooperation with Harmony Gold, launched an online toolkit on 17 March, to facilitate the development of sustainable and bankable projects which will focus on generating renewable energy, rehabilitating mining impacted land and creating jobs. This toolkit was launched during a function that was hosted at the Chamber of Mines. The toolkit was the outcome of the Community Based Renewable Energy Project, funded by the British High Commission in Pretoria. This project effectively integrated renewable energy generation, restoration of mining impacted land and economic development in local communities to create sustainable value. Taking the diverse nature of South Africa's developmental landscape into consideration, the learnings of the project have been distilled into the easy-to-use toolkit.
