Strategies to achieve social impact

Vision and Values

The work of TCC Group is focused on enhancing the ability of organizations to have the greatest impact on societal issues and needs. It is important that TCC as a company, and as a collective group of individuals who care about these issues, does the same. TCC is proactively putting programs into place that will ensure that we have a positive impact on society, the environment, and our employees.

Strategies to achieve social impact

Community Involvement

Throughout its long history, TCC has contributed firm resources and has encouraged TCC employees to give their time and dollars to worthy causes. TCC also matches staff donations (up to $250 annually) to the nonprofit organizations of their choice.

TCC employees participate in team-based community service projects. Additionally, the firm encourages and recognizes individual involvement in volunteering or community initiatives.

TCC has donated books, food, and clothing in numerous collection drives.

TCC Group is committed to community service through meaningful contributions to the larger social good.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

We use hybrid or green car services at each office location.

We reduced the number of in-person firm meetings, conducting them instead by telephone conference. This initiative reduced staff intercontinental travel by 30%.

We cut our office supply ordering and shipping by 50%.

On average, TCC uses 7,400 KwH of energy per month. We are tracking 2008 consumption for baseline data for 2009.

Vendor policy
Vendor Policy

  • We prefer to work with local vendors.

  • Vendors should have formal waste reduction, recycling, and energy reduction policies

  • Vendors should participate in third-party certified renewable energy or carbon offset programs.

  • Products should be made from recycled, non-toxic or less toxic materials. We prefer to work with vendors whose products are made from recycled materials and who use minimal packaging.

  • Vendors should have a formal employee benefits program, including health care.

TCC Group seeks to use vendors that subscribe to and promote socially and environmentally conscious actions in their practices.
