Leticia Greyling – IOI-SA Associate
Leticia Greyling joined the Rhodes Business School in 2010, coordinating their sustainability cluster for their “Leadership in Sustainability” MBA programme, certificate courses and assisting businesses and government in mainstreaming environmental and sustainability management initiatives. Although she has graduated within a scientific field with two MSc degrees (UJ [previously RAU] and UCT) and completed her MBA (Rhodes), her professional experience has been moulded in the corporate environment.
Prior to joining the business school in Grahamstown, she was based in Johannesburg with Transnet National Ports Authority’s head office for almost a decade until early 2010, heading up the national department responsible for sustainability strategy and policy development [including the drafting of the National Ports Act, 2006, environmental and related requirements] and, alongside her team, implementation of sustainable and responsible initiatives at all commercial ports, ranging from port development projects to management systems for the port authority and its more than 750 tenants, nationally.
In order to remain in touch with industry and government developments, she still consults part-time to (mainly) these sectors, but have also done work with the UNEP (United Nations Environmental Programme), UNDP (UN Development Programme) and various regional and international institutions especially on the role & integration of sustainability in businesses and managing environmental & sustainability risks and opportunities within organisations. Amongst others, she serves as vice-chair on the Global Reporting Initiative’s Advisory Board (African region) and is an Associate at International Oceans Institute – Southern Africa (IOI-SA).
