What LUMEC clients have to say.

LUMEC has done an outstanding job developing a cost-benefit analysis report on a composting pilot model that we are implementing jointly with our project partners and two eThekwini Municipality Units. We found the LUMEC team to be attentive and professional, and the high-quality report has played a pivotal role in supporting the project team to lobby the City to consider the scale up and replication of the pilot in the future. We would highly recommend LUMEC for similar work!

LUMEC has conducted two projects for the WRLC and I have been really impressed with the quality of their work and their commitment to produce valid and reliable findings. I thoroughly enjoyed working with all of the team.

The Planning Initiative has known and worked with LUMEC for a number of years. They are very professional and are great in a team. We work with them whenever we can.

LUMEC is an evidence driven research company with a professional approach to the subject matter.

I found the staff of Lumec to be friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. They were prompt and responsive, and communicated regularly with me. The research that they conducted was relevant, and was presented in an efficient, accessible way which has meant that the document was very well received. Having used a number of consultants over the last 5 years, I would highly recommend the quality of work.

The team at LUMEC are experienced and highly professional, they were quick to understand the challenges of our organisation, and skilled in their research and data analysis methodologies. The project ran smoothly and on time, and our board and members found the insights illuminating and the recommendations sound.

LUMEC collated comprehensive and insightful research for I Heart Market. These insights are extremely valuable and has helped us to be able to fine-tune our focus and future plans according to the insight that we now have.
