As part of our CSR initiative, we are pleased to announce the introduction of our new bee area located on the Hildon Estate.
Hildon Limited aspires to be a top environmentally friendly Natural Mineral Water Company. With integrity and transparency at the heart of its business Hildon Limited would like to be known as a company with a sound environmental strategy supported by vision and actual achievements.
The appointment of an Environmental Manager in 2008 shows commitment from the company to drive our environmental performance forward and now with a strong environmental management system (EMS) and good environmental practices embedded throughout the business, this has led to us achieving ISO 14001 certification. This is an internationally recognised certification whereby a company is independently audited against a set of environmental standards. For more information on our UKAS ISO 9001 & 14001 certifications, please click the links.
Our environment incorporates not only our physical surroundings but also our engagement with all our stakeholders and the world in which we operate. To read more on our environmental commitment please view our Quality Control Document here.
Our immediate physical catchment area, which our source lies beneath, is protected from chemicals and has a lovely combination of trees and grassland offering a natural safe haven for wildlife. Our local Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, of which we are Corporate Members, work with us to encourage other wildlife to the area. Further enhancement and protection of our physical environment has come from the removal of diesel storage and the reduction of light pollution.
Ensuring we match this high standard whilst manufacturing has not been easy but for many years we have challenged our processes and procedures, reduced, reused or recycled over 90% of waste streams, added AdBlue to reduce the harmful emissions from our diesel lorries and educated our staff in best environmental practices. In addition to this we will, in conjunction with the Hildon Foundation, support good, local causes and charities. We will strive to continue to maintain or improve all aspects of our environmental performance to remain a top environmentally friendly Natural Mineral Water Company.
As you can see, we really do believe in protecting our environment. We are also passionate about supporting local communities. You can read more about how we give back to the community by visiting our blog here: http://www.hildon.com/news-blog/
