Sustainability Statement

The TDA will integrate the principles of ecologically sustainable development into all our decision making processes, and our own activities, to mutually ensure the optimisation of welfare of this generation and all future generations. We will continue to encourage the industry we represent to be dynamic and develop business practices and products that promote sustainability. We aim to ensure the long term health of the natural resource and achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability within our industry.
