Legacy EMC is an environmental consultancy based in Cape Town, South Africa. We are a level 1 Broad Based Black Economic Empowered Entity (B-BBEE) which is 100% black owned, and is a 49% female black-owned enterprise. The company was established in June 2017 and is owned and managed by Kim Pontac who has more than 8 years relevant and valuable experience within the integrated environmental management industry. She holds a Master of Philosophy degree in Environmental Law from the University of Cape Town, a Bachelor of Technology degree in Environmental Management from the Cape Peninsular University of Technology and a National Diploma in Oceanography, from Cape Technikon.
Legacy EMC has worked across southern Africa and abroad on a number of initiatives in various sectors such as the transport, utilities, social infrastructure and minerals, metals and chemicals, hydrocarbons and nuclear industries. In addition, we have gained varied project experience in respect to international best practices, namely the International Finance Corporation Performance Standards, Equator Principles and the World Bank Safeguard Policies.
Legacy EMC offers a broad range of general environmental services which includes Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs); Environmental Management Programmes (EMPs); Waste Management Licensing; Permitting and/ or Licencing in terms of Specific National Environmental Management Acts (SEMAs) such as the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, the National Heritage Resources Act, the National Water Act, and the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act. Furthermore, our core specialities includes Legal Compliance Audits; Due Diligence Assessments; Environmental Management Systems; Strategic Environmental Assessments; facilitation and training; and environmental construction monitoring.
Legacy EMC believes that effective environmental management reflects responsible business practice, and the realisation of growing socio-economic expectations without compromising the environment for future generations, as the environment is our common Legacy!
We have extensive experience and specialise in:
Permitting and/ or Licencing in terms of Specific National Environmental Management Acts (SEMAs)
The vast suite of SEMAs which currently exists in terms of environmental legislation makes it difficult for industries with commercial activities which generate or release emissions and/ or pollution and/or effluent to comply with all the legislative requirements. Allow Legacy EMC to guide you and undertake the permitting and/ or licencing on your behalf.
High Quality Workmanship
Legacy EMC aligns itself to the core principles of integrated environmental management, namely sustainable development; inter-generational equity; equitable access to information, environmental justice, and just administrative action, to name a few. We will ensure all undertakings by Legacy EMC will be done in an ethical, transparent and professional manner. Quality is at the core of sustainable solutions and therefore Legacy EMC uses up-to-date technology, infrastructure and equipment to complete projects.
