Leading bathroom supplier HiB has embarked on the next phase of its ESG journey by forging a strategic partnership with Futureproof, a renowned sustainability platform. This collaboration marks HiB’s commitment to furthering its sustainable initiatives and making a lasting and positive impact on the environment and society.

James Skirrow, sustainability expert at Futureproof, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership. He said: “HiB joined Futureproof, having already built a strong foundation within sustainability. Over 2024 and beyond, we are incredibly excited to see HiB excel further in this space. Emma and the team are focused on baking all things ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) directly into the core business functions – a fantastic sign for me of a company that is not only prioritising this work but highlighting that HiB will be leading from the front with their actions.

“HiB will be taking a holistic approach, from analysing its supply chain and continuing to learn more about the emissions as a company to its overall governance and how it works with its employees. Nothing is off the table for this exciting evolution in HiB’s sustainability journey.”

The partnership between HiB and Futureproof demonstrates the company’s efforts to integrate sustainability seamlessly into the core of HiB’s business practices. The collaborative initiative aims to analyse and enhance the entire supply chain, delve into emission reduction strategies and ensure governance that aligns with the highest ethical standards.

Emma Cuggy, HiB people and ESG director, emphasised HiB’s dedication to improving its ESG credentials. She said: “A part of HiB’s mission is to make a substantial difference to the lives of our people, partners, and the world we live in. Because of this, ESG is high on our priorities and having Futureproof as our Sustainability Partner will allow us to make meaningful change and measure our success so that we can work towards our vision in the years to come.”

As the partnership between HiB and Futureproof takes shape, the bathroom supplier looks forward to championing sustainability and making a lasting impact on the industry, the environment and the wider community.
