“ Creating a deep and meaningful connection to our local communities has been a key part of our family DNA for decades. Our responsibility extends beyond the four walls of our offices and factories. ”
Bill Parker, Chief People Officer Hero Group
Values are at the heart of who we are and play a critical role in connecting us especially considering how we exist as a grouping of multiple companies in different geographies. Our shared values create a deeper sense of belonging as individuals and entities. They are the social glue that bind all of our differences together. The new Hero values are Create wow, Everyone Hero, Nourish others, and Take responsibility.
Sense of community
We also care about other stakeholders that might be affected by our business, particularly the local communities near our production sites. In addition to providing meaningful employment, every year, we raise money for and give our time and products to local causes.
Our climate pillars
Conserving raw materials, packaging and finished goods via strategic sustainable sourcing to ensure we have a positive impact on biodiversity, healthy soils, and local farms. We will need to do this in close partnership with our suppliers and farmers.
Net neutral production
Conserving natural resource is via carbon neutral production on all our products.
We will do this by reducing and optimizing our use of energy, water, and waste within our production facilities, but also work with our co-manufacturers to drive this ambition together.
Naturally healthy food
Conserving nature's goodness via naturally healthy food. We will leverage our brands to educate and collaborate with consumers on a holistic diet good for us and for the planet. We will enhance our portfolio to give consumers more naturally healthy options – more of the good like nuts and whole grain and less of the bad like refined sugar and red meat.
