COST AND STRATEGIC BENEFIT
We believe that the planning and ‘costs’ associated with commercial operator’s sustainability, environment and rehabilitation management programs should be strategically aligned to also perform as social impact investments; providing local communities with livelihood opportunities, aimed to deliver economic growth and platforms for resilience.
SOCIAL IMPACT INVESTMENT
TDS has extensive experience in identifying relevant, social impact investment opportunities for commercial and industrial operators, and working with local communities to facilitate and implement value-add enterprises. These investments increase ‘social license’, decrease dependence, allow for self-determination and improve investor perceptions.
We actively work with all stakeholders to identify the optimum mix of post impact natural resources use that synergistically facilitates socio-economic development opportunities, whilst realizing the sustainable production and conservation value of the rehabilitated land, or other natural resource.
Land rehabilitation programs may be developed and implemented via local community partnerships, with a strong focus on the development of agricultural cash crops, and associated value-add enterprises. This allows for the creation of resilient revenue chains via commercialization, and the development of vertically integrated local industries.
WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS
TDS may facilitate the development and operation of centralized waste management systems and centers, via local community partnerships- to provide knowledge transfer around environmental protection and the value realization potential of these, often, non optimized and under-valued ‘waste’ resources.
