Environmental and sustainability policy
At Tiny Spark we take our environmental and social responsibilities very seriously.
Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development must address environmental, economic and social factors and the interrelationships between them.
Surrounding conditions, influences, or forces, by which living forms are influenced and modified in their growth and development.
In all our business operations we are working to ensure that we meet our present needs without compromising the future of the environment. We are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact, promoting sustainability and recognise that our work has both direct and indirect consequences. We are continuously improving and learning from our legacy issues to ensure our sustainability is adhered to.
