Targets and Indicators

Target 7.2, indicator 7.2.1: Renewable energy share in the total final energy consumption.

Through HolmStone development and implementation of energy projects, we move our clients away from Business as Usual, GHG intensive energy consumption.

7.3, 7.3.1: Energy intensity measure in terms of primary energy and GDP.

As HolmstoneĀ develops energy projects, where of energy efficiency is a non-negotiable, we implement energy efficiencies in every system and plant we touch. Clients walk away with energy security and energy efficient consumption, and a better understanding of their energy use.

7.a, 7.a.1: International financial flows to developing countries in support of clean energy research and development and renewable energy production, including in hybrid systems.

As HolmStone has extensive partnerships across borders, and involvement with SOLTRAIN throughout the Holm family, HolmStone funnels and channels international capital into energy security, energy education, and clean energy supply into the Southern African markets.

7.b, 7.b.1: Installed renewable energy-generating capacity in developing countries (in watts per capita).

HolmStone intends to provide renewable energy onto the grid matrix, increasing the installed capacity of Southern Africa in terms of generation of renewable energy. Still in 2022, the grid energy and utility provides energy predominantly from a fossil fuel source.

Targets and Indicators

Target 9.2.2. Manufacturing employment as a proportion of total employment.

HolmStone actions delivers new businesses arriving monthly, for the scale and development of the agri-industry business. This contributes to South Africas primary NDC, Job-creation and long term jobs. The security in energy supplied to the agri-industrial sector also allows sustained operation and hence operational times where jobs can be maintained, providing energy, the backbone of development.

9.4, 9.4.1. CO2 emissions per unit value added.

HolmStone changes old existing technologies and develops new energy systems for their clients. As HolmStone develops new energy solutions for their clients, they simultaneously advise and retrofit the consumption of that site, allowing for effective built capacity instead of building a site too large for what would be needed, i.e less GHG intensive operations.

Targets and Indicators

Target 13.2, 13.2.2: Total GHG emissions per year.

With HolmStone implementing both mitigation and sequestration strategies for GHG emissions, HolmStone is contributing to South Africas Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) as per the Paris Agreement (COP, 2015). These include both the industrial aspect of Renewable energy development and production, as well as the Carbon projects, with carbon sequestration within the Agricultural market and revegetation of fallow lands.

13.3, 13.3.1: Extent to which (i) global citizenship education and (ii) education for sustainable development are mainstreamed in (a) national education policies; (b) curricula; (c) teacher education; and (d) student assessment.

HolmStone is involved with multiple tertiary institutions for the development of new research in their revegetation and agricultural areas of work. These include the Nelson Mandela University and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology as well as SANParks. We work extensively with researchers to best apply scientific knowledge, finance and innovative action into a cleaner and GHG low country and economy.
