In order to keep in line with our Ethics we have added AdBlue to our diesel lorries to reduce harmful emissions 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.
The Hildon Foundation was created in the early 1990’s and funded directly by Hildon Limited. Established initially to encourage and support young musicians, an area close to our Founder’s heart, it widened its scope in 2008 to include local good causes, of which we have supported many.
