We see our responsibility as extending beyond the confines of our projects and into the broader global community. This commitment serves as the foundation of our approach to sustainable and ethical practices.

Ethical Supplier Partnerships:

We are dedicated to forming partnerships with suppliers who share our values. Our selection process involves not only assessing the quality and reliability of suppliers but also evaluating their ethical standards, ensuring that every component and material used in our projects adhere to the highest ethical and environmental criteria.

Social Responsibility Policies:

Our partner companies are chosen not only for their products but also for their commitment to social responsibility. These partners have comprehensive Social Responsibility policies in place, which guide their business practices and interactions with the community. This alignment in values allows us to work hand-in-hand with suppliers who prioritise ethical conduct, fair labour practices, and community well-being.

Environmental Stewardship:

We believe in taking active measures to protect the natural environment and reduce our environmental impact. This entails practices such as minimising pollution, conserving resources, and actively participating in efforts to protect and preserve the planet’s natural beauty. By reducing waste, planting trees, and using natural resources judiciously, we aim to minimise our collective ecological footprint.

Sustainability and the Future:

Our commitment to ethical sourcing and environmental preservation fulfils our immediate responsibilities and contributes to a sustainable future. By minimising the environmental impact of our projects, we play a part in safeguarding the planet for generations to come.

Quality and Sustainability Hand in Hand:

We firmly believe that sustainability and quality are not mutually exclusive. Instead, they go hand in hand. Our sustainable partnerships enable us to consistently uphold our high standards of quality. By working with ethically responsible suppliers and environmental stewards, we ensure that our projects meet exceptional quality benchmarks and adhere to the principles of environmental responsibility.

native woodland trust

gold supporter

Total Fitout is a proud Gold Member of the Native Woodland Trust, signifying our strong commitment to support this esteemed Irish charity. The Native Woodland Trust, a registered Irish charity, is dedicated to preserving the last vestiges of Ireland’s Ancient Woodlands, a diminishing resource now comprising just a mere 0.1% of its original expanse. What sets the Trust apart is its unique role in not only securing funding to acquire and safeguard these precious woodlands but also in actively planting thousands of trees annually to create new native woodlands. Additionally, the Trust generously donates hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and community groups across Ireland. Currently managing 11 woodlands and nature reserves stretching from Donegal to Waterford, the Trust’s most recent acquisition, St. John’s Wood in Lecarrow, County Roscommon, is of particular significance. This renowned woodland is among the oldest surviving Irish woodlands. The Trust has also acquired a 23-acre farm-land site adjacent to St. John’s. The strategy is to expand this woodland by collecting seeds from St. John’s, nurturing them in a newly constructed nursery on the new site, and subsequently planting them. Crucially, all 11 woodlands managed by the Trust are marked by a resolute commitment to conservation. No trees will ever be harvested, and no hunting will ever be permitted. These woodlands are left to regenerate naturally, serving as a sanctuary for both wildlife and the public, eternally protected from exploitation. Moreover, the Trust’s structure is designed to ensure that even in the unlikely event of dissolution, the woodlands will be entrusted to the care of a similar organisation, ensuring continuity in safeguarding these invaluable natural resources. These woodlands remain open to the public, held for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
