We believe our principles should be as clear as our water. That's why we are are committed to being an ethical, responsible producer – not just on our own sites, but in everything we do as a business and in the wider world.
To this end we have been working to reduce our environmental impact for many years. Since early 2004 we have been accredited to ISO 14001 and since 2001 to EMAS (Eco Management Audit Scheme) at our Ochils site, the first UK beverage producer to gain this voluntary accreditation. Not only do we meet the voluntary requirements, we go far beyond industry standards.
Our waters come from sustainable, natural and renewable sources and we take great care to make sure we act responsibly as well as continually improve our practices.
All our packaging is 100% recyclable and we are at the forefront of PET light weighting with our product range one of the lightest in the market.
Our commitment has been recognised by The Good Shopping Guide - the world's leading ethical shopping reference. They've chosen Highland Spring as the leading bottled water brand for seven years running, with a 100% score in 2010 and 2011.
