ESC was commissioned by a Malaysian agriculture and food manufacturing company to undertake Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) Due Diligence of potential assets in south and northern parts of Peninsular Malaysia. 

About the Project

The assessment aimed to identify potential environmental concerns and key health and safety aspects of the site operations which could lead to possible liability or issues due to current and historical site practices, or any potential contamination to soil and groundwater.

Our Approach

The assessment required our local experts to travel to 11 facilities, i.e., processing plants, hatchery farms, broiler and breeder farms, as well as feed mill plants which are located in different states in Malaysia. In addition, the project was a challenge as it was conducted during the pandemic, which required our team to adhere to strict COVID-19 SOPs and follow quarantine protocols.   

ESC assessed the environmental setting, current surrounding land use, historical land use (on-site and off-site) of the target site and related concerns impacting crucial environmental and health safety contexts. Current and past operational activities related to site operation were evaluated to establish known or potential sources of material soil, groundwater and/or surface water contamination, as well as further investigation of possible soil/groundwater, asbestos surveys, or emissions sampling were carried out.  

Outcome

The client successfully invested a 49% stake in the poultry segment of the Malaysian food manufacturing company and announced the partnership in the integrated poultry business.  

“The work was satisfactory to us, and we appreciate how your team navigated the COVID challenges to complete the work”, the client wrote to ESC.

Client Testimonials

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
