Hillebrand bulk shipping customers plant over 125,000 mangroves in Mozambique

It’s easy. Being more sustainable that is.  It’s not even something you need to think about. When you ship bulk liquid commodities with Hillebrand, you become part of a reforestation project in Mozambique.  Together we’ve already planted over 130,000 mangrove trees, and we’re not stopping there!

 

One flexitank shipped = One mangrove tree planted

 

Mangrove forests can increase wild fisheries and habitat protection, whilst safeguarding coral reefs.  Since flexitanks are transported across oceans, it’s the perfect way to help restore and protect our planet’s aquatic system.

 

Six months - 130,000 mangrove trees planet

 

Our approach to long term sustainability goes beyond planting trees.  In 2022, you can expect to see more flexitanks recycled, more research into new ways to recycle, more locations where it can be done, higher bulkhead recovery rates and further developments for manufacturing greener equipment.

 

We are choosing to be more sustainable by

  • Pushing for a circular economy for all our equipment
  • Partnering with organizations to protect and restore the planet
  • Raising awareness among costumers about sustainable activities  
  • Encouraging employees to adopt sustainable practices
  • Reducing CO2 emissions per container by 45% before 2025
