    Born from our founder’s passion for people and the planet, AltGen was established in 2012 and is now considered to be the leader in Human Resources Services in the cleantech, sustainability and renewable energy industries across Africa.

    Initially servicing the REIPPPP in South Africa our expertise now encompasses a variety of climate-friendly disciplines, from rooftop PV, energy storage, clean cooking, and carbon management to green hydrogen and the electric vehicle markets.

    With offices in South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, and the United Kingdom, and soon in the United States, we are able to effectively deploy anglophone and francophone services across sub-Saharan Africa, covering an organisation’s entire growth cycle from early-stage consulting to organisational design and recruitment, to managing entire workforces and executing on payroll. We differentiate ourselves from competitors by the qualitative approach we take to engaging on our client’s mandates and the relationships we foster in the industry. We value learning and innovation internally, while externally we focus on providing in-depth insight and advisory services to each of the clients we engage with.
