What Is Our Impact?

Hallstar’s sustainability efforts focus on the environmental, social, and economic issues that help create and sustain long-term success for our communities and our planet. In determining sustainability goals, we keep in mind the critical priorities of our customers, employees and suppliers. This focus led to the formation of the Hallstar Sustainability Program, organized around five key areas: Employee Health, Safety and Wellbeing; Ethical Business Practices; Stakeholder Engagement; Environmental Stewardship, and Sustainable Products.

Our Procurement strategies include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Purchasing in quantities and container types that are optimized for batch size, reducing the potential for raw material waste; in some instances, this may mean limiting purchasing quantities to immediate product demand due to a material’s shelf life constraints
  • Sourcing from local vendors whenever possible to minimize transportation costs and emissions and maximizing truck capacity to minimize overall impact
  • Use of bulk containers and/or dedicated containers to minimize impact from container wash out
  • Working with supply partners who operate within an Environmental Management and Sustainability framework

Hallstar lives by our motto “together, we can work wonders,” and we know that even a few small changes can make a big difference for our planet.
