The CEPEP Company Limited is an Agency of the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government.
This company develops, implements and manages programmes that protect, enhance and beautify the environment in service areas known as environmental work areas (EWAs). The Community-Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement Programme (CEPEP) – our designated company name – was officially launched on the 29th of July 2002 by our former Prime Minister, Mr. Patrick Manning and it suitably represents our mandate.
The foremost goal of CEPEP is to educate communities about the need to improve and preserve our natural environment.
CEPEP's goals are achieved through the enlistment of contracting companies that are independently responsible for the recruitment and management of workers.
CEPEP cares for its labour force because we understand the significance of their contribution to our work. We have designed programmes uniquely tailored to develop our contractors and their employees through continuous training and certification.
The CEPEP Company Limited further encourages integrity and social dialogue among its contractor workers through its Decent Work Agenda consultations. These consultations focus on freedom of speech, equity, security and human dignity.
Our Ste Madeleine location is the home to our head office and our Tobago arm is managed under the Tobago House of Assembly (THA).
The CEPEP Company Limited strives to be the premier environmental protection company and will continue along its path to growth and positive development as it remains committed to its vision, mission and social responsibility.
