Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company, South Africa

'TMACC has always, and will continue to support the belief that maintaining a clean and healthy environment is essential to the future of the Travel and Tourism industry'.

Objective The primary objective of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company as a service industry operating in a protected natural area, is to provide and maintain a high quality visitor experience by means of a world-class facility without adversely affecting the natural environment.

Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) has operated the aerial cableway to the summit of Table Mountain since 1929. In 1991 TMACC contracted consultants to conduct an EIA for the upgrade of the cableway, which led to the development of an EMS in 1997.

During 2000 Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company will aim to introduce training workshops and staff induction programmes for new staff; appoint consultants to drive its Integrated Environmental Management process and devise a strategy to remove all sewerage off the mountain; and to devise a special programme for schools, educating children on environmental issues, with special reference to Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula National Park.
