Environmental policy

For the purpose of actively supporting HBM’s environmental policy we also expect that at least those staff members of our suppliers who cooperate with HBM directly know, respect and observe our environmental policy and, if possible, contribute to its implementation.

Observing the laws and bodies of legislation even is an absolutely indispensable and compulsory prerequisite for a supplier relationship with HBM.
