Hills recognises the long-term importance of building and maintaining our reputation as being environmentally responsible. We are committed to reducing the impact of our operations on the environment and playing a part in influencing consumers and the broader supply chain. Hills maintains an Environmental policy, which details its environmental commitments and sets the broad goals for all staff and contractors in relation to their interaction with the environment. An Environmental Management System (EMS) consisting of corporate standards and guidelines is in place to support the objectives of the policy and formalise Hills’ commitment to continual improvement in relation to the way its business impacts upon the environment. Hills is committed to aligning this system with the requirements of ISO 14001 and conducting internal and external audits to assess compliance. Hills is committed to monitoring and addressing environmental risks across all aspects of its operations.
