Every one of us has a role in the future of the planet, and while green may be the new black for modern brands, Hill’s has spent the past decade taking real action to lead the pet food industry into a more sustainable world.
As a company centred around science and innovation, we want to think about the needs of the next generation of pet parents. One of our first steps toward that goal is to implement environmentally sound processes in our manufacturing plants, such as our TRUE Zero Waste Certified facility in Topeka, KS.
TRUE is a whole-systems approach that promotes the redesign of manufacturing life cycles so that everything is reused. Certification is assessed by how efficiently a facility minimizes non-hazardous materials, solid wastes, and overall resource usage. https://true.gbci.org/
“The GBCI TRUE Zero Waste certification is the direct result of an empowered & passionate workforce,” says Ed Oblon, Hill’s VP Global Supply.
With more sustainability plans in progress, we will continue to invest in ongoing efforts to improve public health and environmental stewardship around the globe.
“We invite all manufacturing plants, regardless of industry,” Oblon continues, “to join us in being TRUE Zero Waste certified.”
