AUSTIN, TX — Hellas is setting new sustainability standards in the sports industry with the implementation of their Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) program. This program uses the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to quantify company efforts already in place, and outlines strategies to further incorporate SDGs into everyday practices.

Hellas has been known for innovative efforts that reduce waste by using recycled and recyclable products in the manufacturing process. One example of this innovation is Hellas' self-manufactured Eco Nailer, which is used in all of Hellas' turf installation projects. Eco Nailer is a composite lumbar board made up of post-industrial turf waste and post-consumer plastic. This product not only contributes to the more than 7 million pounds of waste kept out of landfills in 2022 by Hellas, but also protects trees that would otherwise be cut down to create wooden boards needed for projects. Eco Nailer qualifies for LEED credits, along with the Hellas-manufactured GMax Drain and Wave Pad.

Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI) are also essential to Hellas' ESG program. In 2022, underrepresented and minority groups composed 74 percent of the corporate workforce at Hellas and women made up 39 percent of the corporate workforce. Hellas also implemented an H-2B initiative that enabled the company to hire 193 skilled workers from Mexico, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

With efforts already in place to meet eight of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the leadership team at Hellas is implementing strategies to meet more SDGs in 2023 and encourages others in the industry to do the same.
