EHS Director's Message
We at Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) strive to promote a sustainable framework that stimulates health and wellbeing of the stakeholders and their businesses while still being sensitive to the business development and environmental needs.
It is not an over exaggeration to state that our planet is currently witnessing a crisis of unprecedented sorts namely climate change and its dangerous repercussions on the planet if not urgently contained. These have been largely on the back of uncontrolled anthropogenic emissions through irresponsible man made activities. As EHS we have a genuine responsibility to work with conviction, commitment and dedication to mitigate climate change and protect the environment for future generations.
This has been our central focus in the process of shaping our EHS regulatory policies and we would strive to continue this path and reflect them in all our services
Our role touches the heart and soul of a diverse spread of stakeholders. It is a warm feeling and a matter of pride for all of us at EHS and you as stakeholders, to be an active part of this fantastic journey that has community development and society building as important milestones.
As always we welcome your feedback of any sort that would help us in adding more value to the health and wellbeing of the jurisdiction and the larger environment.
