More Sustainable Together

Finding solutions for building a better future

We share a common goal: to act more sustainably. We want to create a world less burdened by the construction industry's impact – one that’s safer and healthier for all and that benefits from positive contributions to society.

We can help the construction industry be more sustainable while securing its long-term success by aligning on business strategies that value the health of our environment, our people and our society as well as economic factors.

A holistic strategy: three equally important pillars

Environment

We can reduce our environmental impact. We're working to become CO2 neutral by 2023 and lead our industry in circularity so we can make more responsible use of resources.

People

A safer, healthier industry benefits us all. We care for our employees' well-being and can help you find solutions that prioritize health and safety in your buildings and jobsites. 

Society

By committing to a better society and holding the construction industry to high ethical standards, we can make positive changes where we live, where we work and beyond.

For our environment

Reducing our footprint in a resource-intensive industry

We're committed to being carbon-neutral by 2023. How? In 2020 we switched all our buildings worldwide, including our manufacturing plants, to 100% green energy, and we're working to transform our vehicle fleet to hybrid or full-electric cars.

We're also innovating with circularity in mind along the entire value chain of our tools and products.

Reduce

Our fleet management model helps us extend control over the life cycle of our products. We reduce waste by optimizing your tool park and ensuring you never have more equipment than you need.

Reuse

When you return our tools, we either donate them for non-intensive use by humanitarian or educational causes or rework and reuse components for repairs instead of using new spare parts. 

Recycle

Tools that can't be reused are recycled by our global network of audited partners. We're striving to recycle more overall, including during our manufacturing processes, to avoid waste in landfills.

For our people

Prioritizing health and safety for everyone, everywhere

We're committed to the health and safety of our employees. We want to help you do the same.

We not only offer products and services that focus on jobsite and building safety but also help improve safety standards by working with research and approval bodies. We avoid using potentially hazardous substances where possible without sacrificing performance, and our tool innovations help protect your teams from fatigue and injuries.

For our society

Engaging beyond business to find sustainable solutions

We understand there are societal challenges where we live and work. That's why we engage our employees to make contributions that go beyond business.

In developing countries and emerging markets, the Hilti Foundation is committed to empowering people to lead independent and self-determined lives. Its goal is to make a social impact at scale. By working with Hilti, you're contributing to a better world: We provide 2% of our profit to the foundation.
