About Seaton Thomson and Associates
The vision of Seaton Thomson and Associates is to assist with the future planning, development and economic growth of South Africa, by providing a specialised professional service in areas of environmental planning, environmental impact assessment and environmental management. With its diverse knowledge and experience in environmental management, town and land use planning, tourism and conservation, the company strives to achieve an integrated, practical and balanced approach to addressing environmental issues.
Development in southern Africa is a dynamic growth industry, which has had substantial impact on our environment. However, the attainment of economically viable and successful development is dependent on a holistic and integrated approach to the planning, design and operation of such ventures. It must also recognise the role of communities, the land and the value of the environment. Therefore, private individuals, companies and the public sector must all play a leading role in the planning and implementation of developmental and infrastructural activities. It is also imperative that a professional attitude be adopted by developers and project managers. In order to achieve this, professional advice and consultation is necessary to secure optimal viability and good management structures. The philosophy and objectives of Seaton Thomson and Associates is, therefore, to provide the defined range of consultancy functions which will promote, focus and advise the development entrepreneur.
The Company's completed projects have achieved a balance between development and the environment; in significant new investments in development and in the land; in the creation of hundreds of new employment opportunities, as well as contributed to the enhancement of the lives of numerous communities.
Seaton Thomson and Associates can proudly boast considerable success in its work towards achieving this vision and its goals. The company plans and hopes to ensure the same objectives will be achieved over the following years, as South Africa moves through its second decade of freedom.
"If all the beasts were gone,
men would die from a great loneliness of spirit,
for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.
All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth."
