Social Responsibility

Since its inception, DCE has been pro-active in community outreach programs, so it was only natural that in 2008 DCE established a formal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee within the firm.

Chaired and run by volunteer staff members, the CSR Committee focuses on unique fundraising initiatives to assist others in the community, both locally and abroad, by offering time, services, goods and/or funds to help better the lives of others. The integral focus of this committee is to source areas and people in need and make direct contact with them, therefore removing the 'middle-man' factor present in so many fundraising initiatives.

Environmental Sustainability

We believe it's our obligation to protect our planet and conserve its natural resources, to ensure a healthy environment for current and future generations.

We strive for environmental excellence in all our activities, aiming to promote sustainability and environmental awareness at all levels. We are committed to continual improvement of our business practices and reducing our environmental impact through environmental initiatives, ultimately aspiring towards developing a sustainable business.

Key objectives

Reducing the consumption of resources through innovative work practices and strategies, promoting waste minimisation, re-use, recovery and recycling, as appropriate.

Incorporating energy efficiency measures into our business and promoting efficient energy use in all areas of business activity.

Ensuring our staff are aware of the environmental impacts of their work activities and encourage them to minimise those impacts.
