The philosophy of CEN Integrated Environmental Management Unit is forged on the belief that the people of South Africa will only achieve their goals and aspirations through a drive for sustainable development or development that delivers basic environmental, social and economic services to all without threatening the viability of natural, built and social systems upon which these services depend.

The sustainability that concerns the CEN IEM Unit is not just about ecology and sustaining environments. It must meet the essential needs for jobs, food, energy and water and achieve sustainability of both human and natural resources. Sustainable development must unite economics and ecology in decision-making and enhance the resource base.
