Businesses without corporate ethics never go far and NCC Environmental Services know this.

NCC is an environmental consultancy that focuses health and safety, environmental management and conservation programmes.

They offer customised business solutions to reduce the environmental risks and impacts of major firms as well as training and development.

NCC founder Dean Ferreira started the business after working as a nature conservationist in the City of Cape Town.

Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

Ferreira said the business creates a value proposition through the competency of its staff and quality of its work.

We differentiate ourselves through our passion for the environment. We don't compromise and are completely ethical.

Dean Ferreira, founder of NCC Environmental Services

Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis says environmental managers are key to assessing business practices on the Continent.

Businesses must start paying attention to the environment, as part of the commercial decision-making process. This is going to become a big feature of successful companies.

Pavlo Phitidis, business growth specialist

For NCC to reach the next level, Phitidis advises that the company boost its international accreditation and align itself with other major construction companies.

The Nedbank Business Accelerator with CapeTalk celebrates entrepreneurs who build the businesses that South Africa needs.

CapeTalk welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.

We strive to make the CapeTalk community a safe and welcoming space for all.

CapeTalk reserves the right to: 1) remove any comments that do not follow the above guidelines; and, 2) ban users who repeatedly infringe the rules.

Should you find any comments upsetting or offensive you can also flag them and we will assess it against our guidelines.
