MEC – Malaysian Environmental Consultants Sdn Bhd – is a consultancy focused on the sustainable development and environmental management of land, water, forests and natural resources. Our mission at MEC is to guide our clients through the demands of natural resource and environmental management.

As development in region grows, businesses and organizations face both an increasing number of new environmental regulations and challenges as well as more vigorous enforcement of old laws. Our business is to know what organisations need to act on, why and when things need to be done. MEC’s forte is to understand the why and how of things.

Our company name was borne of a deep national pride and a desire to provide consultancy for the protection of Malaysia’s natural heritage. Environmental sustainability and conservation of Malaysia’s rich biodiversity is the foundation of our mandate and practices. Our expertise now serves the South East Asian region as well.

We also strive to serve our communities, acknowledging that project success ultimately depends on the people we work for. Successful business is no longer simply about passive compliance. It is about being identified as having a commitment to sustainable development and being trusted over the competition to manage our future resources.

Based on multi-disciplinary approaches and a holistic view of management, MEC’s consultants are committed to finding innovative and reliable ways of fulfilling those commitments, building that trust and meeting the country’s environmental challenges.
