By prioritizing sustainability in what we do, TPH has been able to strategically focus our efforts as a company so that managers can make better environmental decisions. Together, we all can play a role in raising the bar in our industry and influencing buying behaviour in the marketplace.
Since 1961, TPH has believed that doing the right thing is good for business. “Our process for incorporating social responsibility and sustainability into our operations and decision-making is ingrained into our culture,” says Andrew O’Born, Vice President of Business Development. “We’ve tried to create a portfolio of things that we keep adding to in order to support our environmental initiatives. We’re a family business and we own our own stores, so we have that level of control, if you will. It’s something we believe in wholeheartedly.”
Jamie O’Born, TPH President, adds “…This past year we solidified our commitment to sustainability by declaring a corporate vision of ZERO WASTE. Living into this vision will be a journey and not one that is easily accomplished; it will take the best of our intentions, innovations, and efforts to apply this vision to all aspects of how we think and do our work."
