Lunch with Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis & Deputy Mayor Eddie Andrews

April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

At COP27, President Cyril Ramaphosa launched the new JET Investment Plan (JET-IP) which sets out in detail how South Africa proposes to use the $8.5bn the EU and several developed nations have pledged towards the country’s transition to a low carbon economy. Embracing new economic opportunities in green technologies can drive industrial development and innovation, leading to a sustainable and resilient future with decent work, social inclusion and lower levels of poverty.

South Africa’s energy crisis is crippling our economy, however, a fair and sustainable transition toward greater energy security requires clear and decisive leadership, high levels of collaboration, and a shared vision of the future with full buy-in by all relevant stakeholders.

We look forward to an intimate networking engagement with Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis and Deputy Mayor Eddie Andrews who will share with us their insights and views on what the JET-IP means for Cape Town, and how regional business can support the City in its mission to make Cape Town the first municipality free from load-shedding.

Objectives of the Engagement:

  • To provide an opportunity for regional business leaders to network with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor
  • To establish a clear, shared understanding of the JET-IP and regional energy security
  • To identify areas of collaboration between the City and the private sector with respect to the JET-IP
