Sustainable Environmental Solutions Since 2001

Human beings are the only species on earth capable of major environmental modifications. Over the past few centuries, human activity has increasingly altered the ecosystems of the world. The most notable effect of society on the environment is land use, whereby the natural environment is altered in order for us to survive, and different land uses is the end result thereof. Although land use is not a feature of the environment as such, it represents the current status of the land surface as a whole, and therefore reflects the condition of the environment.

With the rapid urbanisation and the escalating demands of urban development both locally and globally, the need for sound environmental management has been accentuated.

While humans have imposed many undesirable and unexpected changes on the environment, we have the capacity to modify the rate of such changes or to reverse these actions. We at Lokisa believe that by providing a pro-active service through environmental assessments, there is some basis for hope that humans can be reconciled with the environment.

“Lokisa” means “to fix” in Sotho and as an independent consulting practice we provide a professional, cost effective service with the purpose of finding sustainable solutions between the pressures of development and the protection of our natural resources.

Capabilities, Skills, and Resources

The principals of Lokisa have successfully dealt with the environmental requirements of a wide range of projects, including bulk services, industrial and commercial developments as well as numerous residential and township establishment projects, including a number of RDP projects.

We believe in a holistic approach and the optimum and appropriate use of available resources, from sophisticated computer systems to labour-based techniques, combined as required to achieve the stipulated objectives of projects. A combination of technologies is therefore employed to meet the absolutes of every project and to ensure the successful implementation thereof, regardless of size or complexity, within the time limits and budgetary constraints imposed and to the required quality in terms of materials, labour and workmanship.
