Environmental & Social

SRK Consulting's Environmental Department provides management consulting services to stakeholders in the sustainable utilisation of human and natural resources.

The environmental team is well equipped to assist you in creating solutions to environmentally related challenges in a variety of local and international market sectors.

We work with mines looking for economical, effective compliance; with small businesses and industrial giants that need to assess and manage risk; and with environmental protection agencies looking for assurances and solutions. In-house and external specialists support our environmental team to enhance our ability to deliver these services.

SRK has a long-standing reputation for being trusted by all stakeholders, meeting the challenges of our clients and consistently producing high quality work.

Our world-wide environmental experience ranges from environmental authorisation processes (numerous mining and other environmental authorisations based on our environmental assessments) to consideration of practical, business orientated projects, for example, competent persons reports for the listing of major mining houses as well as solution driven technical investigations. Within this range of services we provide input for objective decision making (evaluation of rehabilitation options), management plans and their implementation and monitoring (responsiblity for implementation of environmental management plans for companies, auditing (compliance and environmental management systems) and conflict management (re-settlement and other social projects). Our approach is one of assisting our clients as partners.
