One of the constraints faced by low cost housing projects is poor governance, hence the examination of corporate governance and sustainability on low cost housing. Literature is the main method used 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 Published, unpublished papers and journals were accurately reviewed to find solutions to the subject matter.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 the terms congested on yearly reports of companies, but the question is whether the Corporate Social Responsibility is valued. The paper will assist the industry to realise that: the achievement of companies does not rely on compliance of legislation and standards only, but also by a broad series of economic, environment and social problem in a manner that is useful to the whole society globally. Organisational sustainability enforces environmental standards to be adhered and ISO 14001 standard help companies to improve environmental performance by reducing waste, efficient use of resources, receive integrity of partner and be successful.
