THE SPECIALIZED SERVICES OFFERED BY MEC:
SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL PRODUCTION:
MEC has built up auditing palm oil production enterprises over the past seven years. We have expertise in both due diligence undertaking and performance audits using specific standards or RSPO Principles and Criteria. Sustainable palm oil audit involves incorporation of social, environmental and production dimensions. We have successfully developed a framework approach accurately identifying gaps and compliance where sustainable production is concern.
NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLANS:
MEC has the expertise to produce both integrated and comprehensive resource management plans. Forest resource management is our forte and we provide a high degree of spatial as well as statistical analysis in our management planning.
GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS:
More and more businesses are using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), along with air and satellite photo interpretation and analysis to enhance not only their data, but also their business. MEC recognizes this growing trend in spatial technology and ensures their clients a thorough range of GIS services to give their projects the edge required to compete in today’s market.
MEC uses state-of-the-art spatial technology to create maps and images that visually assist project interpretation. These maps are essential in delivering an understandable and powerful presentation to clients and give your project the edge required to make an impact in the environmental business sector.
Remote sensing overviews, using air photos and satellite images are available. The use of remote sensing permits a more defined zonation of the area under study.
MEC produces environmental reports based not only on literature research, but also on first-hand field studies. This work is undertaken by the company’s consultants or with selected specialized collaborators to ensure expertise in every report.
NATURAL RESOURCE MAPPING:
MEC uses the tools of GIS, GPS and remote sensing in their projects to develop a precise inventory of site resources. Knowing the extent of our resources makes for better management and mapping them gives a formerly dull database a powerful visual impact.
MEC maintains its own database, which contains details of forested areas, land use, hydrology and transport, including a catalogue of satellite images and air photos.
SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT SUPPORT:
