PROACTIVELY MANAGING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

We care for our environment.

We are committed to the principles of the circular economy, which is the opposite of the old “take, make and dispose” industrial model.

This means we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and repair or recycle products at the end of their lifecycle. Hilti is an ISO 14001 Registered company. But our commitment to the environment only begins there.

Ecological targets across our entire value chain.
