Ball Horticultural Company has been making sustainability part of its business practices for years.
This latest report (February 2013) called ‘Longevity’ features our company’s
worldwide efforts to adhere to its corporate objective: Grow A Green Future.
Available only as an online document, ‘Longevity’ is divided into three sections:
• Sustainable Buildings
• Supply Chain
• Social and Environmental Stewardship
The 30-page report highlights Ball Horticultural Company’s vision for a long and healthy future.
It includes a feature on our own UK plant production facility Bordon Hill Nurseries, in Stratford Upon Avon; a model of sustainable action, (page 23) with its revolutionary bio-bed system to purify chemical waste and reed beds to clean and handle run-off water from the 22 acres of greenhouses.
The report also features a closer look at two brand-new facilities: the Las Limas farm in Nicaragua, and the Ball Premier Lab, which were designed from the ground up to be more sustainable. Many of these reports are supported with videos, just click on the video link in the report.
“Our latest sustainability report celebrates the efforts of Ball companies, its facilities, suppliers and customers,” says Bill Doeckel, General Manager of Ball Innovations. “Through video, photography and vibrant storytelling, ‘Longevity’ offers a snapshot of our accomplishments, as well as our commitments to promote sustainable practices as we colour the world.”
Of course we didn’t print the report, it’s only available on line. But if you do print off a copy please remember to recycle!
