Certification story

Hillbrush, a premier provider of brushes suitable for various sectors and a Royal Warrant holder, has achieved certification to the Planet Mark. This is Hillbrush’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to Planet Mark. In this crucial Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment.

 

Steve Malkin
CEO
Planet Mark
“Hillbrush have taken the next step in its sustainability journey, and I’m delighted to have them on board. It is clear to see that the team is dedicated to creating a sustainable world for the company and its customers, and the added ability to measure and reduce its carbon is a natural step on the path to reducing its environmental impact. I have no doubt in Hillbrush’s capacity for change – we need more companies this dedicated to sustainability.”

Certification story

Certification to Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability within its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.

Hillbrush is committed to a policy sympathetic to protecting and preserving our environment, minimising environmental impact at all stages of production, and in the way, we package our products. From sourcing vegetable fibres for its products from sustainable sources in developing countries to its Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody certification for its wooden products, the company takes tremendous care in its supply chain to provide a range of products with sustainability in mind. The company also encourages its customers to make sustainable decisions, such as changing from buying brushes with fitted handles to threaded handles where possible and cutting down on packaging and transport costs at all stages of production.

Consumers are rapidly becoming more knowledgeable about their role in climate change and carbon production. This means many are requiring strong sustainability standards from the products they purchase. B2B companies and suppliers must continue to demonstrate clear commitments for both the planet and for profitability.

Future targets

Reduce carbon footprint by 5% annually

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Hillbrush has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
