Sustainability

TSC Home Page SEE

The goal of sustainability is to enhance the quality of life without compromising the needs of future generations. Sustainability is achieved by balancing the social and economic needs of humans with the environment. We  shall  adopt sustainability in our day to day lives, in our thinking, and in all aspects of our behavior.

Sustainability can be interpreted and defined in many different ways.

The World Commission on Environment and Development defines sustainability as “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” (1987).

There are three main pillars that make up sustainability; often referred to as the 3 P’s: People, Planet, Profits or the 3 E’s: Environment, Economic, and Social Equity.

Our story for sustainability encompasses all the three main pillars embedded not only in our branding DNA, but in what we strive as an organisation to achieve
