AFZELIA recognizes the need in South Africa for development that is both in harmony with the environment, and in line with progressive growth. We believe in development that is functional, yet sustainable, and it is our primary objective to facilitate a smooth and efficient transition for your company toward this ideal, whilst bearing in mind the necessity for development.
We fully embrace the value of the National Environmental Management Act (Act 107 of 1998) which addresses the aspects of sustainable development for the benefit of all and in particular, the need to ensure that the legal requirements of Section 28 of NEMA which addresses: Duty of care and remediation of environmental damage: "(1) Every person who causes has caused or may cause significant pollution or degradation of the environment must take reasonable measures to prevent such pollution or degradation from occurring, continuing or recurring, or, in so far as such harm to the environment is authorised by law or cannot be reasonably be avoided or stopped, to minimise and rectify such pollution or degradation of the environment"
We recognise that obstacles to sustainable development and successful project completion are often the result of interest groups who feel threatened by change and uncertainty about the costs and benefits of alternatives. Overcoming these obstacles requires astute facilitation of public discussion, negotiation and mediation, melded with a thorough knowledge base.
Our aim is to deliver fast, efficient and cost-effective environmental solutions for your business. Our emphasis is on development that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainability.
It is the policy of the members of AFZELIA Environmental Consultants that no discrimination is made in terms of colour, creed or sex in any and all capacity involving the company. All projects undertaken by AFZELIA Environmental Consultants make use of PDI specialist consultants wherever possible, and the company strives to pass on its expertise to PDI’s through outsourcing components of projects as and where possible.
