The paper delivers a theoretical analysis of corporate governance and sustainability on low-cost housing. One of the constraints faced by low-cost housing projects is poor governance, which should be the development prospective of a company whose directive is to refine the economic potential of the countries in the process of transformation. Literature is the main method to investigate the research problem. Published, unpublished papers and journals were accurately reviewed to find solutions to the subject matter. The study revealed that it is a prerequisite in terms of the National Environmental Management Act for National and provincial department to formulate an Environmental Implementation Plan for any building construction activities that will have an impact on the environment. Green and sustainable are terms filled on company yearly reports, but the question is whether the Corporate Social Responsibility is valued or well thought of or highly regarded. The paper will assist the industry to realise that the achievement of the company does not only rely on the compliance of legislation and standards, but also by a broad series of economic, environment and social problems in a manner that is useful to global society. Organizational sustainability is an established requirement with many obligatory conditions enforcing ISO 14001 and environmental standards to be adhered to.
