Hager’s Green Initiatives

Every step, no matter how large or small, is a good step in preserving our environment for generations to come.
Hager Companies
At Hager, we’re concerned about how our company and products affect the environment. As a result, we’ve taken steps to minimize our impact--and we’re continually reviewing ways to do more.

Hager’s green initiatives include:
  • Using only recycled paper (with a minimum 30 percent post consumer waste) for copy machines
  • Implementing a corporate headquarters recycling program that single streams the recycling of paper, plastic, glass, metal, and other materials (diverting such waste from the landfill)
  • Implementing recycling efforts for scrap metals and corrugated products
  • Utilization of FSC-certified paper for all of our marketing collateral (ensuring that the paper is sourced from responsibly managed forests) and printing with soy inks
  • Encouraging employees to make every effort to print only when needed and utilize both sides of the paper
  • Providing corporate headquarters employees with a fully-equipped workout room to encourage an active lifestyle and environmentally friendly methods of commuting to work (running, biking)
  • Participation in the RCGA St. Louis Green Business Challenge program (to expand efforts to reduce energy and waste, expand sustainability programs, and reduce the company’s environmental impact)
  • Using product packaging that contains recycled content
  • Using materials in the production of our products that are made of both pre- and post-consumer materials, enabling our customers to qualify for LEED® credits
  • Replacing mercury lighting with florescent lighting at our Montgomery, Alabama, facility (conserving energy)
  • Replacing all lighting at corporate headquarters with CFLs that provide the same level of lumens but require a fraction of the energy (providing better lighting for employees to help boost morale and efficiency)
  • Consolidated manufacturing and distribution efforts to reduce transportation (consuming less fuel and producing less emissions) and reducing inventory space (reducing our physical footprint)
  • A wastewater pre-treatment facility at our Montgomery, Alabama, manufacturing plant that removes 98.5 percent of the soluble metals created during the manufacturing process and significantly reduces water consumption
