At HM Royal, we believe in leading by example, so we embed a deep commitment to environmental standards in everything we do.

At HM Royal, we care for the environment and are committed to doing our part. Every single day, our locations strive to reduce their environmental footprint through more sustainable measures.

We have implemented several initiatives, such as computing efficiency, improved waste management schemes and enhancing employees’ awareness of green habits.

We understand that incremental changes build better habits, and together we can make an impact on the planet’s health. We are prideful of the progress already made, but know that there is always room for improvement as we strive towards a cleaner, greener future.

As part of our commitment to society, our people and the environment, we conduct a thorough assessment of its business sustainability practices every year through EcoVadis, the global standard for business sustainability ratings. The EcoVadis assessment includes 21 sustainability criteria across four core themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. In our latest rating, we earned a bronze metal and, which places HM Royal in the top 35% globally.

“Every day, across all our locations, there are initiatives in place to minimize our impact on the environment.”

Joseph Royal, President & CEO
