Environmental Services

SEC primarily specializes in assessing the impacts of development on the natural, social and biophysical environment. The Environmental Impact Assessment process is initiated and completed by one qualified, professional contact person, thereby ensuring project continuity, accountability and exact knowledge of the project at every phase of the process. SEC prides itself in contributing towards sustainable development by producing Environmental Impact Reports that provide environmentally sound advice that is pragmatic and implementable. SEC has undertaken a wide range of environmental impact assessments since its inception in 2008. SEC offers the full spectrum of services required to successfully manage an EIA up to the decision making phase of a project. SEC drives and fulfils the following environmental project functions: overall project management; Government/authority liaison; specialist studies management; report compilation; client involvement; complete public participation process; and managing the environmental interface with ground truths.
