Table Mountain Cableway: Sustainability & responsible tourism (video)

The flat-topped Table Mountain is, besides the V&A Waterfront, Cape Point, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Robben Island, the most prominent landmark of Cape Town. Being such an remarkable landmark and important contributor to the city's tourism industry, the main service provider at Table Mountain, the Table Mountain Cableway, is putting its focus not only on providing transport up and down the mountain and on its service facilities on topof Table Mountain, but also on sustainability and responsible tourism. The following video, released by Table Mountain Cableway, is providing some basic info about the company's efforts towards waste reduction, water and electricity usage reduction, as well as about the heart of Cableway's corporate social responsibility: the principle of access for all! Kudos! Enjoy!

In 2011 the Table Mountain Cableway was the overall winner in the Imvelo Awards for Responsible Tourism and in 2012 the company was a finalist in the waste management category.
