About Us

The identification, assessment and coordination of participative and sustainable environmental solutions have developed since 1996 as a focal mission of KSE and its sister company uKhozi Intuthuko Yomphakathi – Community Upliftment Services: these two companies have now merged, to form uKhozi Environmentalists.

The founder of these two companies, Ken Smith, was one of the first scientists to practice environmental management in South Africa. In the spirit of environmental sustainability through and for the next generation, Ken ceded his company (uKhozi Environmentalists) to a new generation of highly specialised environmental practitioners whom he has hand-reared. He currently contracts as a mentor and senior environmental scientist to his new-generation practitioners at uKhozi.
