Research Report - SMMEs and the Green Economy

The Gordon Institute for Business Science (GIBS) at the University of Pretoria, works with more than 6,000 executives, managers, scholars every year across multiple countries to advance the idea that business can be, and should be, a force for good, for change, and for economic development, and work in close cooperation with government and civil society.

SPARK supports entrepreneurs with services that are aimed at creating strategies for growth, building learning systems that drive innovation, generating the capacity for the activation of business models that lead to sustainable economic development and personal growth.


SPARK, in partnership with the Enterprise Development Academy at GIBS, conducted research looking into the sustainable practices of small, medium and micro manufacturing enterprises in Gauging Province. The findings were collated into a comprehensive paper with a large amount of complex information to convey.


I designed a 60-page research report to clearly lay out SPARK’s research and contextual analysis. This included creating custom-designed figures and graphics to supplemented the text and emphasize the report’s key findings.
