In 2012 the Environmental Security Division was formed as part of HBT Consulting, a fully black owned and female owned company, established in 2001. In 2013 Environmental Security Division was registered as a company in its own right in response to a growing international need to combat animal poaching. Later in 2013, at the request of an existing client, Environmental Security Division expanded to include tactical rural area security special operations. With experience in both the public and private sector, we are able to provide customised services that meet the specific requirements of our clients.

In December 2014, In order to keep the General Security Business, and rhino protection separate from a probity and donor accountability perspective, ESD established a Charitable Trust (Non-Profit Organisation), and Public Benefit Organisation, named RhinoGuard. RhinoGuard is administered by ESD, who also cover ancillary expenses such as vehicle costs, rent, power and water etc. The focus of RhinoGuard is to utilise donor funding as a mechanism to be able to provide rhino counter poaching services to public & private rhino and wild life owners or managers in South Africa, who would otherwise not be able to afford protection for their rhinos.
