KR Sustainability and Hillbans Pest Control have joined forces to review the organisations environmental and sustainability credentials, and the result is the introduction of an innovative, environmentally friendly, non-toxic and humane pest control, and a significant reduction in the businesses overall carbon footprint.

Corporate Sustainability is crucial for organisations and with the current global crisis it is the forefront of many corporations to rethink how we live and work and particularly the use of products and practices that may harm the planet and the environment.

Sandra Knowles, of Hillbans Pest Control commented “The current shift in thinking is not new by any means but has now been brought to forefront, and Hillbans have decided to focus on carrying out environmentally friendly treatments wherever possible, using products that are as harmless as possible to the land and to nature.

Hillbans has always prided itself on its ability to evolve and diversify and using poison free, humane and non-toxic products is another step in that direction, eliminating the possibility of secondary poisoning which allows an environment that is not only pest free but in which native species can survive, thrive and flourish. This is particularly important in our work with rural businesses and in other areas where poisons can be harmful to other wildlife.”

Kayleigh Richter of KR Sustainability added “KR Sustainability are delighted to have partnered with Hillbans Pest Control on their environmental policies and practices. Being able to introduce an environmentally pest control is innovative and will really make a wider positive impact on the environment.”

KR Sustainability have been providing key environmental guidance around Hillbans operations and activities. Working to complete and implement actions through the Green Impact award, and to implement an ISO14001 environmental management system.
