Averda has appointed Justice Tootla as their new Managing Director effective the 1st of March 2021, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Averda South Africa.
With over 20 years’ experience within various industries including telecommunications, oil & gas, and manufacturing, Tootla spent the last three years as the Chief Executive Officer at Soleil, and previously held the same position at Thales SA Systems.
“I am very excited to be joining Averda, especially at this time when environmental sustainability for future generations is our collective responsibility. I’m also positively encouraged by the leadership South Africa is taking in advancing the vision of the United Nations Agenda 2030 for a better and sustainable future for all,” says Tootla.
This new appointment will see this Soweto-born South African lead Averda’s ambitious growth plans within our borders through Averda’s leading end-to-end waste management services.
Tootla ended by saying “South Africa’s Progressive Waste Management legislation in recent years, especially on hazardous waste is a step in the right direction. In joining the Averda Team, I am looking forward to making a difference by supporting the creation of a circular economy through eliminating waste and ensuring the continual use of resources.”
Over recent years Averda has invested in several facilities and technologies to manage waste more sustainably. These include a plant at Vlakfontein which transforms hazardous liquid waste into fuel for industry and material recovery facilities in Guateng and Cape Town where recyclables are sorted.
