DETECH, especially with the advent of the COVID pandemic in late 2019, has adopted a standpoint of both community and industrial sustainability where we see these as follows.
Community sustainability

  • The enhancement of the local community by utilising local assistance within projects through consulting or the supply of product.

  • The insurance that the local or project environment is returned to its original state on completion of the project allowing the planet to regenerate naturally in a now safe environment for the local community.

Industrial sustainability
  • Reducing the interface of personnel with potential hazardous environment where possible by using technology where applicable.

  • Making sustainability (both community and industrial) a primary company objective through adopting the company strategic sustainability model as the company culture and thus way of approaching all aspects of each project.
