Earth Day serves as a reminder to minimise our impact on the planet for the well-being of both humanity and the Earth. We have comprehensive sustainability initiatives aimed at reducing our environmental footprint and fostering a greener future. Through innovative strategies and investments, we’re dedicated to promoting sustainability across its operations.


Harnessing the Power of the Sun

One of our flagship initiatives is the implementation of a cutting-edge solar panel energy system. By harnessing renewable energy sources, we are significantly reducing our reliance on petrol generators, thereby lowering carbon emissions, and contributing to a cleaner environment. This commitment aligns with our vision to transition towards sustainable energy solutions. In March, our solar system became fully operational with over 1000 solar panels generating approximately 600KW, significantly reducing our reliance on traditional energy sources.


Brightening the Workspace, Responsibly

In addition to renewable energy, we’ve upgraded our office lighting systems to energy-efficient alternatives. By optimising lighting solutions, we aim to minimise energy consumption while maintaining a productive and well-lit work environment. This initiative showcases our dedication to integrating sustainability into every aspect of our operations.


Harvesting Water for Green Spaces

Recognising the importance of water conservation, we have implemented water harvesting systems to irrigate our gardens and green spaces in our Woodmead head office facility. The capturing and utilising of our rainwater reduces our reliance on municipal water sources, conserving this precious resource and promoting sustainable landscaping practices.


Closing the Loop on Waste

As part of our commitment to waste reduction, we’ve established comprehensive recycling programs for paper, plastic, and cardboard materials. By recycling these resources, we’re minimising landfill waste and promoting a circular economy, where materials are reused and repurposed to their fullest potential. In addition, we’ve partnered with an organisation, Dispose I.T., to ensure that all our e-waste is disposed of in a responsible manner and does not end up on our landfill sites.


"We believe that sustainability is not just a choice, but a responsibility," said Gary Pickford, the Managing Director at Tarsus Distribution. "Through our initiatives in renewable energy, efficient resource management, and waste reduction, we are actively working towards a more sustainable future for our planet and future generations."


We remain steadfast in our commitment to environmental stewardship and will continue to explore innovative solutions to further advance our sustainability goals.
