Ecological Services

EMC has one of the largest teams of experienced ecologists in the East African region; they work in diverse environments worldwide.  We provide ecological consultancy across a range of sectors from oil and gas to renewables, but always with the goal of developing business-led solutions supported by technical excellence. We are used to working as a team to achieve integrated project solutions.  Through being part of a multidisciplinary consultancy, we have detailed understanding of the cost and engineering challenges faced by our clients.

Our Approach

We help our clients to understand the challenges and opportunities that biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) present for their operations. Key elements of our approach include:


Delivering sustainable projects through the management of BES


Taking a business-risk approach to the assessment of BES


Understanding local and international stakeholders’ roles in BES


A strong focus on health, safety and the environment throughout a project’s life


Using the latest global positioning system (GPS) and remote-sensing technology to minimise field time and costs


Providing knowledge transfer and on-the-job training for local ecologists.

We make the best use of resources to ensure that our clients can comply with the guidance and legislation relevant to their project. We apply international best practice standards such as the International Finance Corporation Performance Standard 6. Our experience includes working in challenging environments where climate, unexploded ordnance and security are that all managed to ensure the highest health, safety and environmental standards are achieved.
