The Western Cape Industrial Symbiosis Program (WISP), delivered by GreenCape and funded by City of Cape Town and the Western Cape Government, looks at drawing a green circle between businesses by identifying unused or residual resources, which are not limited to water, expertise and logistics. This is done to favour the waste economy, with the objective to create value for companies by diverting their waste. Click here for the WISP infographic.

WISP facilitators, therefore, create sustainable business streams after having identified the needs and resource levels of companies and bridging gaps. This ongoing interaction creates not only a learning curve, but also identify the opportunities in untapped or unused resources.


Cobute is proud to be attending the 10th WISP Business Opportunities Workshop (BOW) in September 2017.
