We're restless in our pursuit for sustainability

With every shipment a tree is planted

Hillebrand is proud to be partnered with Eden Reforestation Project's in creating a global restoration network that is creating livelihoods for millions of living in extreme poverty by empowering them to restore and protect forests on a massive scale.

The mission is to offer the dignity of fair employment to people living in impoverished communities, who become transformational agents of global forest restoration.

We have dedicated to plant a tree for each flexitank that is shipped.

 

 

Planting trees for a greener planet

Eden aims to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year. 

Million Tree partners have planted over 1,000,000 trees with Eden and are leading the way in the restoration of land and lives.

Setting standards

As a global logistics organization as well as a manufacturer, we take our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously.  We're on a path to create a circular economy for all the equipment we produce, knowing how important it is to have full traceability over the raw materials we use and where our items end up.

 

Helping our customers to become more sustainable

Understanding and lowering the carbon footprint of our customers’ shipments is now much easier.  myHillebrand quantifies the greenhouse gas emissions associated with each shipment to help to better analyze the global footprint of our customers’ operations and take the necessary steps to reduce their emissions.
