Hillier continues commitment to sustainability


Hillier Nurseries is pleased to announce that the company has been awarded ISO 14001 accreditation.


ISO 14001 is a globally recognised standard, providing an agreed framework to follow regarding Environmental Management Systems. It indicates that a company is having less of an impact on the environment and has strong systems in place; increasingly commercial  organisations are looking for suppliers and partners to be able to demonstrate this and other standards.


Hillier aims to be a leader in good environmental practice and, prior to this award, already had a strong, sustainable approach in place across the company’s nurseries. For example, waste is kept to a minimum throughout the supply chain by recycling bags and packaging materials and water is re-used from the company’s own reservoir.


Thanks to continued efforts to ensure this has all been documented properly and is part of day-to-day working practices, Hillier has now been awarded ISO 14001 certification.

Hillier Nurseries has also recently joined The Planet Mark. This is a certification programme that recognises companies committing to continuous improvements in sustainability. Through it, company’s can measure and find opportunities to reduce carbon emissions, energy and water consumption, waste and more. 

“We are all more aware than ever of the impact our actions have on the world around us”, comments Chris Francis, Hillier Garden Centre and Wholesale Nurseries Director. “Our customers, quite rightly, are increasingly vocal, asking about the approach of our business to the environment. Hillier aims to be a leader in good environmental practice, but there is always more that can be done. Together with The Planet Mark we have the opportunity to put in place clear measurements and transparently demonstrate our progress.” 

Hillier will work with The Planet Mark on measurement and improvement of environmental performance, keeping sustainability at the centre of Hillier business.
