Philosophy and Accountability
DTA Ecology believes in professionalism and delivering excellence in our work. We operate within a self-imposed Code of Professional Ethics, which ensures integrity and avoids conflicts of professional interest.
DTA Ecology is accountable to the code of professional conduct of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM).
Ethical and Sustainable Business Trading
The company also operates in accordance with an Environmental Policy Statement, which seeks to minimise the impact of our business on the environment and to add value to the environmental work that we do. This policy is complemented by our Ethical and Sustainable Business Trading Policy.

All our policies are regularly reviewed to see whether amendments are necessary.
“I write to thank you for the excellent and comprehensive training programme that you have recently delivered on our behalf. The feedback that I have received from the Planning Inspectorate, Local Authorities and NRW has all been very positive. Feedback suggests that the course was pitched well, extensive and most useful for understanding the day to day compliance with the Habitat Regulations.” (Welsh Government)

The extent to which Caroline has shared her knowledge more widely within the profession was also recognised.
