Business Ethics

 

 

“TSD Consulting constant growth was obtained through quality work and built on ethical values. These essential values contribute positively to our professional relationships.”

Ethical Relationships

TSD Consulting creates with its partners, employees and clients a climate of mutual trust favorable to the development of ethical relations based upon the values listed in our charter:

  • Integrity,
  • Professionalism,
  • Honesty,
  • Dialogue,
  • Respect,...

Social Responsibility

Respect for the values of the company included in our Charter is essential for TSD Consulting. All our partners have to respect the human rights (no child labor, decent working conditions …). TSD Consulting’ flat hierarchical structure allows greater involvement of the participants at the project level. It results in the establishment of a long term relationship with our employees based on listening and dialogue (participation in the Works Council).

As we mainly recruit young graduates, TSD Consultingis attentive to the establishment of partnerships with universities to foster close and meaningful interactions between students and the corporate world (by providing interesting internships to students for example). TSD Consultingalso supports non-profit organizations through the purchase of various supplies (for instance our calendars help fund ‘Doctors without frontiers’ ...). We also participate in sports events while helping raise funds for a set of associations (Handicap International with 20Km of Brussels, Research against Cancer with the race ‘La Parisienne’…). Moreover, every time we upgrade our IT installation, all obsolete computer equipment is donated to local organizations (schools mostly) or is recycled.

Environmental responsibility

Concerned with issues about the protection and enhancement of the environment but also mindful to contribute to the improvement of working conditions, TSD Consulting began in April 2012 setting up an eco-friendly approach. TSD Consulting thereby participated actively in establishing a Green Lease for a more sustainable management of the building in which it has its registered offices in Brussels. TSD Consulting also obtained in June 2013 the Label ‘Entreprise Ecodynamique’ granted by the IBGE (Institut Bruxellois de Gestion de l’Environnement) for 3 years. This label rewards on the one hand the efforts made by the company in the management of natural resources (energy, water, ...) and on the other hand its ecological approach (use of recycled paper, non-use of products harmful to health and the environment ...). A complete assessment was made to monitor and reduce the electricity consumption in all premises of the Group. In the Headquarters, the lighting system was changed for a more energy efficient one (with motion sensors so that only the occupied areas are lit). A major effort was conducted at the Research & Development Center to renew the IT infrastructure, outsourcing and virtualizing servers in order to control energy costs related to the development of our solutions.

A Travel Policy sets out the rules of good practice for business trips (priority to conference calls and travel by train when possible...). For the company cars, TSD Consultingdefined a limit value for the Ecoscore, thus favoring less polluting and less noisy vehicles.

Procurement policy

TSD Consulting established sustainable criteria for the selection of partners and suppliers. First and foremost, we are looking for partners who respect human rights (no child labor, decent working conditions,…).For all consumables, TSD Consulting favors the ecological products and those not harmful to the environment. We order the majority of our office supplies (recycled paper, consumables, tea, sugar… ) to BtoBGreen because of their strong ecological and sustainable commitment. Also important for TSD Consulting is the local criterion. For example in order to reduce our CO2 footprint, when we organize team buildings or corporate events we insist that the food comes from local origin.

We are aware of existing opportunities to expand and improve our CSR action... We are willing to develop and strengthen our social involvement while continuing our effort to reduce our carbon footprint.
