After successfully forming Tshikovha Environmental and Communication Consulting for over 12 years, it was time for innovation that is aligned to global trends. South Africa has always been lagging in terms of implementation of Environmental laws and aligning to international treaties and environmental agreements. The time for traditional patterns of doing Environmental Studies for developments had to change to incorporated international trends that seeks to address United National Sustainable Goals, Climate Change commitments, Sustainability and technological innovation and create business model that resonate to the future. That warranted the birth of Tshikovha Green and Climate Change Advocates Pty Ltd.
South Africa is suffering from historical legacy of no compliance with Environmental legislations. When mining and other developments where being implemented, it was done to maximise profits and there has been little done to save the environment. Before National Conservation Act 73 of 1989 there was no requirements for environmental studies before commencement of activities which had detrimental impact to the Environment. The efforts of the country to ensure compliance led to introduction of National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998 to ensure studies are done to ensure possible impacts are identified, assessed and mitigated.
The consequences of not complying are dire to business reputation, environment and may lead to prosecution. Tshikovha Green and Climate Change Advocates Pty Ltd exists to be the reliable Environmental Assessment Practitioner that is able to assist with Environmental studies so that anyone who seek to conduct activity listed within environmental legislations can operate within the framework of the law and avoid possible fine, jail term and at worst closure. We are a reputable organization with employees who are registered with SACNASP, IWMSA, ELA, SAIOSH, COMENSA, PRISA, and in consideration for EAPASA to ensure we play along the best.
