CES was established in 1990 to service a then fledgling market in the field of Environmental Management and Impact Assessment. The Company has grown significantly since then, due to the increased demand for our high quality environmental and social advisory services across 20 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Leading experts in environmental and social advisory services
CES has its head office in Grahamstown, with offices in South Africa (Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London and Johannesburg), as well as a wholly owned sibsidiary in Maputo, Mozambique (Coastal and Environmental Services LDa., registered as an Environmental Practitioner with the Mozambican authorities).
At CES, we have adopted a sound and rigorous scientific approach to all the work we do. In addition, we believe that a balance between development and environmental protection can be achieved through skilful and careful planning. Our exemplary 30 plus year track record across over 20 African countries and in South Africa, is evidence of the value that we bring to the environmental and social advisory services, particularly in our deep understanding of the environmental and social challenges associated with establishing and operating facilities and infrastructure in emerging markets.
CES staff are all exceptionally well qualified, with many being industry-recognised experts. In addition, CES has well-developed working relationships with a number of other individual specialists and specialist consulting companies, who provide us with expertise in disciplines such as air quality impact assessments, noise impacts, heritage assessments, radiation hazard assessments, groundwater studies and health impact assessments. We have a demonstrated ability to manage EIAs for large and complex projects.
