Sustainability & Eco-Efficiency
The Environmental Capacity and Services (ECAS) is based in Nairobi, Kenya. Founded in 2010, it is an institution founded on a ground that effective design, execution and accomplishment of policy, legal and institutional frameworks is enhanced by requisite capacity, information and partnerships.Located in a country that is widely regarded as environmentally conscious, Kenya suffers serious solid waste management crisis, climate change induced disasters, water deficiency, air and land pollution, human wildlife conflicts and food insecurity among other environmental challenges.
By focusing on such work in Kenya, ECAS offers a knowledge platform that allows the public to gain direct understanding of the environmental issues in a real-world context. Through the expertise of ECAS and its partners, our society is exposed to relevant and grounded knowledge that can be shared and transmitted for the benefit of communities, governments, donors, NGOs, corporate, media and academia.

Our Experience Tells Us That Identifying And Implementing Solutions To Address These Complex Issues Is What Most Companies Struggle With.
