At CES, we adopt a sound and rigorous scientific approach to all the work we do.  In addition, we believe that a balance between development and environmental protection can be achieved through skillful and careful planning.  Our exemplary 33 year track record across more than 20 African countries and other emerging economies, is evidence of the value that we bring to the environmental and social advisory services offerings we provide. This is due to our deep understanding and appreciation of the environmental and social challenges associated with establishing and operating facilities and infrastructure in emerging markets.
