Sustainability as a trend?
Today, everything has to be "sustainable". But do you know what "sustainability" actually means? The term originally comes from forestry and means that no more wood is felled than can grow back at any given time. Its modern meaning is that no more should be consumed than can be regrown, regenerated, and provided again in the future. The goal is to preserve the natural regenerative capacity of our systems.
As a producer of valves and fittings for water distribution, we pay attention to the protection of our environment and use energy sparingly. However, our projects in the field of sustainability do not only refer to ecological aspects but also to economic and social ones. For decades, these three pillars of sustainability have had a special status at Hawle - because sustainability is not a trend for us, but a company policy that we live by.
