ERM established its office in Nairobi in 2014 as part of a continued expansion initiative in East Africa to meet the needs of our global and local clients who are increasingly investing in this region of Africa.

ERM supports a wide range of clients in oil & gas, mining, power, manufacturing and infrastructure and financial services in East Africa and has done so for over 30 years. As such, we have an in-depth understanding of the regulatory requirements and the relevant environmental and social issues pertinent to establishing and operating in the region. The opening of this office in Kenya is a further step towards ensuring that our clients' demand for world class environmental and social expertise with strong local knowledge and experience is consistently met.

ERM is involved in a range of environmental, health, safety and social projects and work throughout the Sub-Saharan region to offer clients effective, value-added solutions using experienced local and global expertise. Our operations in East Africa differentiate themselves from others in our market by providing a diverse mix of environmental, social and business consulting skills. This includes advising clients on:

  • Compliance
  • Due diligence
  • Management systems
  • Climate change
  • Sustainability
  • Social performance
  • Resettlement
  • Licensing and impact assessment
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Process safety (MHI) risk
  • Safety performance improvements
  • Contaminated site management

While the majority of the services we are providing to clients have been focused on impact assessment and planning services, as operations have become more established and the economy emerges we are also seeing demand growing for Transaction Services and performance improvement and assurance support.
