PROACTIVELY MANAGING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Caring for the environment – part of our Champion 2020 strategy

Our purpose – Building a Better Future – reflects our corporate strategy and is focused on sustainable value creation through leadership and differentiation. 

This credo not only runs through our products, services and operations but also extends to the importance we place on Health, Safety and Environment at Hilti and it reflects the high sense of responsibility we feel towards employees, customers, partners and suppliers, society and the environment.
