TDM is committed to sustainable development and it is at the core of our business. We understand the pivotal position business and learning organisations have in supporting agendas for sustainable development to allow future generations to prosper and our responsibility to protect and manage resources to enable them to do so. We have a duty of care to those persons less fortunate than ourselves and we should not allow our actions to cause detriment to others, either directly or indirectly by reckless procurement and poorly conceived business strategies.
We take our company’s impact on the environment very seriously, and we reduce our impact on the environment by preventing pollution, encouraging employees to consider the environmental consequences of their actions, implementing procedures, measures and policies that protect and preserve the environment, promoting environmental awareness among our suppliers, sourcing supplies locally where possible and disposing of waste according to legislative requirements.
To promote sustainable development in all aspects of TDM’s business and become an exemplar organisation in the way we are committed to the sustainable growth of both our staff and our clients businesses, looking at sustainability in a holistic way that embraces economic, environmental and social aspects of sustainability.”
