Sustainability, one of the HMY pillars

We are facing a weather emergency; there is no doubt about it. To slow down the effect of climate change on the planet is something of all of us who are part of society, both individually and at the level of companies, institutions and associations. Aware of this, HMY has integrated sustainability as an essential value of its identity and innovates to guarantee, with transparency and ethics, sustainable development based on respect for the environment and people.

Commitment to the environment and sustainability

HMY’s commitment lies in working to reduce its carbon footprint, aim at zero waste through a circular economy, preserve resources and participate in the development of the local economy. An objective that translates into cleaner production, initiatives to reach greater environmental responsibility, measures aimed at the product life cycle and investment in sustainable and local actions.

On the other hand, the company privileges the use of raw materials such as steel and wood that allow its reintroduction into the production chain through recycling. In addition, HMY works with suppliers committed to sustainable forest management programs.

These measures also apply to each of its facilities and production processes through the reduction of waste, energy, water consumption and CO2 emissions produced both in their production processes and in their transport management. Between 2014 and 2018, HMY factories in France have managed to reduce their CO2 emissions by 3%.

On the other hand, a reflection is made from the design on the future and the second life of the products. In this sense, we are partners of the Valdelia ecological organization for furniture management that have reached the end of their life cycle.

Thanks to this voluntary and committed policy of continuous improvement, HMY factories have received several certifications: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, SMETA audits, etc. Therefore, HMY can guarantee its customers and partners the authenticity of their commitment.
