South Africa’s environmental legislation is amongst the best in the world, but staying compliant within that legislative framework can be extremely challenging and onerous.

One of the challenges is that there is invariably a need for integrated authorisations. Jones & Wagener pride ourselves in specifically offering this integrated authorisation process service.

Our team of experienced environmental scientists, engineers and managers can guide you through the entire process. This includes project management, consultation with government authorities, ensuring appropriate public participation processes, conducting impact assessments, assisting with a communication strategy and report compilation.

We also offer a comprehensive compliance auditing and environmental control officer service that encompasses environmentally-related legal requirements.
