About Us


MENCO is built on the fundamental environmental principles of assisting our clients in conservation, protection, mitigation and management of natural resources when utilizing these resources in an economical sustainable manner.

Of all of our natural resources, water is a key element in the complex array of environmental manageable components. Especially in the field of water management, shared water resources must be managed by all users to ensure sustainable and equitable water use for all. With the continuous changes affecting the development of the country, its people and the environment, water management requires special attention.

A challenging environment has been created for South African business to exist in. This is due to environmental legislation attempting to increase environmental awareness whilst striving to regulate and improve current environmental practices, a fluctuating monetary exchange rate, as well as pressure from the international trading community.

With the above in mind, MENCO is able to assist business with a pro-active and transparent environmental management strategy. There are numerous environmental consultants available, consequently the question can be asked:

Why MENCO?
