We are working

CES is committed to upholding the periods of lock-down in countries where we have offices (i.e. South Africa and Mozambique). This will remain for as long as we are instructed. All projects that can continue whilst observing country specific restrictions will be done in consultation with our clients. Please connect with us online, via email and phone.

Leading Experts in Environmental and Social Advisory Services

CES was established in 1990 to service a then fledgling market in the field of Environmental Management and Impact Assessment. The Company has grown significantly since then, due to the increased demand for our high quality environmental and social advisory services across 20 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

CES has its head office in Grahamstown, with offices in South Africa (Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London and Johannesburg), as well as a wholly owned sibsidiary in Maputo, Mozambique (Coastal and Environmental Services LDa., registered as an Environmental Practitioner with the Mozambican authorities).

This web site provides more detail on the range of services we offer, and we invite you to explore it, and download any brochures of interest to you. If you are an Interested and Affected Party on one of the many EIAs we are usually involved with, we direct you to our “public documents” page. If you wish to make contact, our “contact us” page has all relevant contact details for all branches.

CES Company Profile - 'Capability Brochure'

Thank you for visiting our web page.

"We believe that a balance between development and environmental protection can be achieved by skilful; considerate and careful planning."

CES is now part of NEXTEC, which is a new company within the EOH group of companies. Now that CES is a company of NEXTEC, we have taken the opportunity to update our brand. 

The original CES logo and brand was well-known in environmental spheres and synonymous with respected experts and credible outputs.  Therefore, CES have decided to return to the familiarity of the previous logo but with an update to match the evolution of the business since its establishment in 1990.

A bit about our logo…

  • The new logo builds on the original circular logo, but has a more contemporary look and feel;
  • The inclusion of the African and European continents represents CESs expanding geographical footprint;
  • The circular characters in the font mirror the globe and represent the outward looking approach the company has taken to expand its service offerings; and  
  • The recognisable and iconic turquoise colour associated with the CES brand over the last almost 30 years returns to represent the quality, expertise and longevity of the business.

While our branding has undergone some change and we are now a company of NEXTEC, CES is still registered as Coastal and Environmental Services (Pty) Ltd. and so it is very much business as usual. We are proud to be able to continue our legacy into 2020 and we look forward to you being associated with our journey. 

In March 2018 EOH announced their new strategy. The key characteristic was to establish two distinct and independent businesses, each with its own unique brand and identity, business model, growth and go-to-market strategies. This strategy was driven by the need to optimally position the business for future growth, bring clarity of brand and identity in the market, and ultimately simplify business. EOH Holdings now consists of two main entities. iOCO is dedicated to providing world class data analysis and operates within the ITC space.  NEXTEC is a specialised advisory and domain specific company focusing on the digital enablement of infrastructure and people management services.
