Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
This is an environment management tool that is used to assess the social, economic and environmental impacts of a proposed project. If you are putting up a commercial, industrial, educational, hospitality or even a residential project, EIA enables you anticipate the environmental impacts of the project and how best to mitigate them.
Ecocare and/or its consultants have been involved in EIAs for large scale projects such as mining, infrastructure and manufacturing to small scale residential projects and thus have the depth of experience to offer best practice in environmental mitigation measures.

Occupational safety and health is concerned with the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs are to foster a safe and healthy work environment.
The cost of energy is a major expense for many establishments and can have significant impact on pricing and profitability. Energy management is the process of monitoring, controlling and conserving energy in an entity to ensure optimal energy use.
This process helps an entity reduce their energy costs and reduce carbon emissions which damage the environment.
