Sustainability

Sustainability is a part of our culture

We are aware of the impact we have on the environment and climate, society and the economy. Our goals cover all aspects of sustainability, so we act responsibly and cautiously. Everyone at Hermi represents a piece in the mosaic of a better tomorrow: by caring for health and the environment, economy and, last but not least, co-creating a society that equally includes everyone.

Sustainable development is more important than ever

HERMI never loses sight of sustainable development when it comes to environmental protection (reduced energy consumption, use of clean energy and renewable resources), strategic integration into the economy (digitalisation and the entire production chain to create added value with emphasis on the regional and local development), and social responsibility (intergenerational equality and solidarity, gender equality and decent work).

Our environmental aspects relate to:

  1. using renewable raw materials and sustainable materials that are less harmful to the environment (aluminum, copper, steel);
  2. utilising renewable energy sources (solar power plants) and reducing the energy consumption as well as the consumption of other resources such as water, paper and plastics;
  3. economical use of packaging (maximum possible utilisation of boxes, pallets and cargo capacities during transport);
  4. recycling sites on company premises, thorough waste separation and all-around waste reduction;
  5. complete readiness to deal with emergencies and natural disasters (including assistance to others);
  6. implementation of safe and environmentally friendly business processes under full responsibility and high ethical principles;
  7. education and active participation of all stakeholders (from suppliers to customers and employees) when it comes to environmental issues; and
  8. raising awareness of human and increasing our capabilities to mitigate climate change.

We do not use plastic bottles or plastic cups in meetings and at work. We strive to reduce the consumption of paper and printing ink day by day by introducing completely paperless operations. Caring for the environment is an integral part of our image and the operations in our company.
