The Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) helps to implement the City of Cape Town’s Environmental Strategy, working with a range of other departments and external partners to ensure Cape Town’s long-term environmental sustainability.

"Cape Town is a special place – a beautiful coastal city with world-renowned biodiversity and a rich cultural heritage. However, our natural and cultural environment is increasingly under pressure from a range of factors including climate change. We are serious about following a holistic approach to sustainability and about managing our environment in a way that enhances economic opportunities and social wellbeing. It is, however, not only the responsibility of the City and its partners to protect and conserve this wonderful place we call home – every single one of us has a role to play."
