About Us


EIMS was incorporated in 1993 and born out of the need for specialised environmental services to support and manage the environmental risks associated with Phase 1 of the Lesotho Highlands Development Project, including Katse Dam and the associated infrastructure. On the basis of this project and driven by the growing awareness of environmental issues and risks, coupled with EIMS’s reputation for delivering quality and reliable advice, the company grew and diversified to the multi-disciplinary team we are comprised of today. We are a South African company, proud to have expanded into virtually every aspect of the environmental management consulting sector’s spectrum of services, to the point where we currently have a portfolio of diverse experience which competes with international leaders in our field.



Vision EIMS is a modern African company dedicated to providing environmental consulting services that are regarded by our peers and clients as the benchmark in terms of quality, efficiency and value.
