Our Approach to Environmental Awareness
Consideration for our environment is of the utmost importance. Most activities have some impact on the environment and as a responsible organisation, it is our duty to reduce and minimise that impact.
At Hills Commercial Group, we are committed to ensuring compliance with all relevant and applicable EPA legal requirements. We have incorporated an Environmental Policy to ensure that we lead the industry in reducing the impact we place on the environment through activities of our business. We achieve this by:
– Minimising the use of non-essential chemicals, products and materials;
– Minimising waste and improving recycling both within the company and by our customers;
– Minimising toxic emissions by selecting plant equipment that has environmental standards; and
– Complying with environmental laws, regulations and standards.
Hills Commercial Group services, staff, strategic partners and contractors are all committed to the promotion of environmental health and management systems, and to improving and helping our environment.
Customised Recycling Programs
Hills Commercial Group has created many recycling programs to increase recycling and reduce the environmental impact our Clients produce through waste and various other services. For our Clients to fully commit to “Going Green”, first off, all Staff, Faculty and Students need to work together and commit to this common goal. Without everyone chipping in and doing their part, this recycling initiative can’t succeed to its fullest potential.
To Reduce Waste We Must First Understand It
For example, schools often produce tremendous amounts of waste with instructional materials, used electronics and food. One estimate is that approximately 24% of a school waste is recyclable paper and approximately 50% is food waste and non-recyclable paper that can be composted. But faculty and students can work collaboratively to reduce the amount of waste produced. Getting students and faculty involved in recycling at school is good for the environment, educational and can be a lot of fun. Educating our children about the importance of recycling provides the country with a path to a greener future. As children learn about recycling, they will be more likely to carry these habits into their adult years. They also will learn how their personal actions can affect the future.
Hills Commercial Group can assist companies with a tailor-made recycling program, which in the long term can produce time and cost savings along with actual data drive results that you can be proud to advertise.
