Welcome to WISP

The Western Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme (WISP) is a free service that connects companies so that they can identify and realise the business opportunities enabled by utilising unused or residual resources (materials, energy, water, assets, logistics, expertise), enhancing business profitability and sustainability.

The programme is funded by the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism under its green economy portfolio and is delivered by GreenCape, the Sector Development Agency for the green economy in the province. 

WISP works with a broad range of industries and companies of all different sizes to create mutually beneficial links between member companies. No company is too big or too small to benefit from WISP and membership is free regardless of sector, size or turnover.
