Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We put health and safety first, we are environmentally responsible, we respect human rights and we are passionate about supporting the communities in which we operate.
When we talk about sustainability, we define it in simple terms. It’s about taking actions today to ensure we can succeed and grow in the future: building value for our shareholders; creating great jobs for our people; providing exceptional service for our customers; and making a positive impact on the environment and community.
We regularly monitor the environmental performance of all our operations through internal sustainability and quality management processes. We also conduct surveillance audits to ensure our ongoing compliance with the external environmental, safety and quality system certifications that we hold. Hastings Deering is also committed to setting and achieving targets in relation to energy use, water use and recycling rates, and our carbon footprint. These are the foundation points of our sustainability program.
