1.0 Commitment to Sustainability
The core of any business is its people and their individual attributes including integrity, ethical values and competence – and the environment in which they operate. 3MD Inc. Denali Advanced Integration (“Denali” or the “Company”), has been delivering Enterprise IT solutions and services in order to guide clients through the most complex IT challenges since 1992. We provide world-class technical solutions and best practices globally. We work closely with our customers, listen to their needs and goals, and put together plans to implement a collection of technologies to help keep up with the speed of business.
This Sustainability Policy (the “Policy”) outlines Denali’s commitment to environmentally sustainable practices and serves to provide an on-going commitment to continually improving our environmental and sustainable footprint. This Policy is effective immediately as of July 27, 2022 (the Effective Date”). By our internal standards, Denali believes that sustainability is defined as using, developing, and protecting resources at a rate that enables current business needs, while protecting future generations of Denali stakeholders.
The Company believes in conducting affairs in a fair and transparent manner by adopting the highest standards of environmental conservation, professionalism, honesty, integrity, and ethical behavior. Accordingly, the Environmental, Sustainability, and Governance Committee (the “ESG” Committee”) was formed and is responsible for developing the implementing procedures necessary to institutionalize sustainability procedures for the Company. This includes encouraging environmentally sound, ethical, and sustainable business practices. Denali’s aim is for the workforce to be truly represented of all sections of society, and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best while remaining diligent to applicable sustainability practices. Denali’s Commitment: Denali recognizes that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.
