The HTA is one of the largest trade associations in the Uk and has been established for just over 100 years and has a almost 1600 businesses with a turnover of over of £5 Billion a year. Their roll is vital in guiding the industry collectively towards best practices, we consider them a very credible source when it comes to following recommendations for improving our environmental impact. The HTA works very close with many agencies, associations and groups such as

This allows them to consolidate research and make recommendations to us and the industry as a whole, ensuring we are always aware of ways that we can improve our services and reduce any negative impact that we have on the environment.
