What is Sustainable Development?

For us, sustainable development is one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is a key part of the group’s ‘Invest’ corporate value and integrated into our day-to-day business.

The three pillars of sustainability: Social, Economic and Environmental are taken into consideration when making decisions. Being completely transparent can support the right actions and our progress will be reported via this dedicated section of the company’s website.

Key Pillar Number Three: Environmental Sustainability

TIMCO takes a holistic perspective, from source to consumption and end-of-life to reduce or eliminate adverse impacts to the environment.
