SIEC: An Emerging Face in the Sustainability Sector Offering a Complete Spectrum of Environmental Consulting Services for Businesses


SIEC – Sustainable Integrated Environmental Consultants

“Our inspiration stems from the need to ensure that awareness about sustainable solutions reaches the right audience.”

Sustainability has become inevitable, and undoubtedly, its significance will grow exponentially in the coming years. It needs to be incorporated into every industry, whether on a small or large scale! Here is when the important role of a partner who has an adept understanding of developing a greener way of doing things takes center stage.
Sustainable Integrated Environmental Consultants (SIEC) is one such confidant that never leaves a chance to make a positive impact on the environment. Whether it’s helping with environmental management, sustainability practices, or using smart technology, the team at SIEC sticks around to make sure clients’ environmental goals are in line with the latest standards.
As we sat down for a hearty conversation with SIEC’s Managing Director and CEO, Mr. Amit Gandhe, we delved deeper into the journey of his brainchild. We also had swift overviews of the company’s values and strategies for the future, which we have compiled in this draft for our readers.

Prime Insights: What prompted the conceptualization of the company, and what specific market opportunities or gaps did you identify and address?

The decision to start our company was not just a spur-of-the-moment choice; it was a long-term plan that I had envisioned for years. After spending the past 17 years overseas, primarily in Singapore and Australia, I was particularly engaged in smart city and environmental projects. There, I recognized a significant potential in the market for the introduction of sustainable practices. Throughout my involvement in various projects, I noticed a common challenge: the technologies and innovations developed were not effectively reaching the end users. This often led to projects remaining at the concept level without proper implementation.
The realization struck me that, to truly make a difference, it was essential to bridge the gap between innovative concepts and practical implementation. By prioritizing sustainability and offering innovative solutions, we aim to not only address environmental challenges but also contribute to the successful implementation of impactful projects. Our goal is to create a company that not only envisions a sustainable future but actively works towards making it a reality.

Prime Insights: What were the prominent challenges that came your way during the initial years?

Having not previously worked in India, my comprehension of administrative processes, regulations, and taxation was entirely unfamiliar to me. This inevitably led to some delays in getting started. However, as the saying goes, “If you do that, then only you can say that you are in business.” I’m pleased with how this process has educated me and allowed me sufficient time to organize and establish a well-structured company.
Navigating the complex landscape of sustainability and translating these concepts for stakeholders was a tough challenge. At times, we found that sustainability seemed distant from ground reality. However, we are proud to announce that we have successfully overcome this challenge by adopting a simplified communication strategy. We now wholeheartedly embrace these critical aspects in both our operational practices and communication efforts. From starting the company, getting funding, and building a great team, we’ve learned a lot.
