Environmental awareness

  • Both energy and water resources are being put under pressure due to urbanization and South Africa’s move towards a diversified First World Economy.
  • Energy costs are rising, and available water resources are falling.
  • National, provincial and local governments as well as the private sector has been mandated to address water saving programs and to promote sustainable and responsible use of our limited resources.
  • The same principles apply to Energy saving and responsible use of available power.

Norsag helps address all these issues. Firstly, through reductions in water usage, secondly through our contribution in filtration and lastly through our energy saving building components.
