Why build green?

Contribute to lower CO2 emissions and boost building attractiveness

Green building practices are a key strategy for meeting the challenge of climate change including reduction of CO2 emissions. Investments in energy-saving and other climate-friendly technologies also help create buildings and communities that are healthier places to live and work while helping reduce the risk of sick building syndrome.

At the same time, green building certification offers transparency on the environmentally-friendly credentials of buildings. Possible benefits include lower building operating costs thanks to alternative energy sources, higher building values and returns on investment, and increased rents.

Our sustainability approach

From our goal to be carbon neutral by 2023 to product recycling initiatives and employee volunteer programs, Hilti has sustainability as part of its core purpose.
