Founding Member of Bahori Environmental Consulting
Our work experience
We have been in the environmental industry since 2000, and have provided services as Environmental Scientists with Gibb Engineering & Architecture, and have fulfilled various roles over the years as independent contractors for companies such as Prime Resources (Pty) Ltd, SGS Ghana and Umhlaba Environmental Consulting cc. As Associates, we have successfully carried out environmental applications in South Africa, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zimbabwe.
Serving as Environmental Assessment Practitioners at SLR Consulting from 2009 to 2014, we helped clients successfully undertake applications for environmental authorisation processes in South Africa and continental Africa.
These projects have taken us to South Africa, Ghana, DRC, Zambia, Rwanda, and Uganda. We’ve been able to add environmental value to clients’ multimillion rand contracts, and have advised these large, mid-tier mining companies (Anglo American Platinum (PLC), First Quantum Minerals Ltd, Metorex, Boynton and Impala Platinum) on the appropriate approach to each authorisation process.
These projects required the management of a diverse, multinational group of specialists to deliver the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) components of a bankable feasibility report on time and within budget.
