What We Do


The costs and environmental impacts of energy, water, materials and waste management have become pivotal issues for all manufacturing, general industrial and commercial businesses. The engineering systems involved tend to be complex, and so many opportunities go unexplored and unexploited. We have the solutions to make the achievement of class-leading levels of efficiency accessible, and will verify the results achieved through our rigorous and innovative programmes and services.  We do the heavy lifting while remaining in contact with you throughout the process, working with your technical and operational staff and building a portfolio of projects to take your resource efficiency performance to the next level.  

VWG would like to partner with you to ensure that you minimise your environmental footprint and your costs. We are leaders in resource efficiency engineering who not only provide advice, but walk the path with our clients from current state to peak efficiency using measurement, modelling, project management and our deep experience across a wide range of industries to deliver results.  We work with all significant industrial systems, including steam, refrigeration, compressed air, motors, heating systems, lighting, effluent treatment, water treatment and more. We also work with the core manufacturing processes that make your industry unique.

For broad-based continuous improvement outside of resource efficiency we employ A3 Problem Solving as our methodology of choice. We support organisations with structured continuous improvement in areas like cost, throughput, safety, quality, morale, the environment and more through problem solving consulting, training and coaching, supported by our e-learning platform, 

About Us

Established in 2005, VWG Consulting is an integrated resource efficiency engineering services business that works with clients to achieve competitive and sustainable operations. Our goal is to make a material contribution towards the growth of South African industry, giving our clients an unmistakable advantage over their competition. We also want to play an active role in growing the businesses of our partner network through the projects we develop, thereby helping to build an ecosystem of engineering businesses involved in resource efficiency.

We offer a range of services, all of which may be customised to client requirements and are aimed at the delivery of concrete results rather than simply the provision of advice. We are pioneers in self-funded resource efficiency programmes which allow our clients to save resources such as energy, water and raw materials, and to minimise waste management costs, without having to spend a cent upfront. Instead our programmes are paid for from the verified savings our services deliver. What this means is that our services are not a cost, but a benefit to the companies we work with. This can include the funding of resource efficiency projects inside client operations for customers who prefer to deploy their capital elsewhere. 

We are a Level 1 contributor to BBBEE. Consider working with us if you want to significantly boost performance, reduce your costs and make a positive impact on the health of the planet. 


At VWG we take immense pride in our ability to be effective in diverse environments and in both small and large organisations. Our clients have ranged from multinational blue chips and large SOE’s to small family-owned businesses. Our projects have ranged from strategy and policy formulation through to site-level assessments, implementation projects and training.
