MTS plants a tree for every person we train

MTS is committed to sustainable living, defined as “Development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.* In everyday terms this translates into a consideration of all business activities in terms of the social impact, the use of natural resources and the effect on the environment. At MTS we assess the impact of all our activities and adopt an approach which is in harmony with sustainability principles. This includes: purchasing fair-trade products; purchasing products which contain recycled materials; re-using and reducing waste as much as possible; and travelling by bicycle or by public transport whenever possible. In addition, we arrange for a tree to be planted by the Woodland Trust for every person trained by MTS.
