NCC Environmental Services

Biography

When Dean Ferreira says: ‘Welcome to the jungle’ it is not a threat, so much as an indicator that his company has just completed the job it was asked to do. NCC Environmental Services employs nature conservators by both qualification and heart, who offer passion, commitment and uncompromising values, combined with practical experience. “We focus on the provision of conservation and biodiversity, environmental management, health and safety consulting services and training and development programmes. NCC supplies is a trusted partner to major engineering and construction firms, mines, parastatals, film and event production companies, local, provincial and national government, as well as to NGOs and conservation bodies,” says Dean. Having headed up the Nature Conservation Unit for the City of Cape Town, Dean says he has learned much about legislation and the growth in the green industry. This is why his company is able to effectively supply environmental control officers and auditors, health and safety agents and officers, as well as accredited and unaccredited training and conservation operations and consulting services to those that require them. , coupled with my passion for the environment in this industry, it is our duty and responsibility to grow the next generation of greenies – I felt this this could only be achieved if I managed my future. “My next step will be to develop the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) arm of our business, as well as investing in further training qualifications and registering these with the relevant SETAs to expand our Training and Development Unit’s offerings. I also plan to look beyond SA’s borders to further develop the business. Ultimately, I want NCC to contribute to real growth for people, the planet and businesses, while always protecting the environment in which we live.”
