Introducing R-evolution: A business venture focused on a sustainable future.

Join the R-evolution

Hexagon launched R-evolution to reinvent and empower how industry addresses complex environmental risk. It is noteworthy that — in the face of a global pandemic that threatens the lives of millions — governments and businesses all over the world mobilised solutions and technologies at unprecedented speed, producing testing platforms, vaccines and treatments. Hexagon, inspired by this global effort, turned its focus to a global risk that has the potential to claim more lives and cause permanent economic damage if left unchecked: the urgent risks to the earth’s environment.

Hexagon is in the business of leveraging technology and data in ways that improve productivity and quality while making processes more efficient. The result is fewer inputs and less waste. The concept behind R-evolution is no different. Sustainability projects can benefit from many of the same sensor, software and autonomous solutions Hexagon’s customers use today.

R-evolution was founded to take the lead on urgent priorities that maximise both sustainability and shareholder gains using Hexagon’s technology — which already contributes to environmental sustainability by improving efficiency, quality and safety in a broad array of industries and applications.


The sustainability revolution will create a completely new economy.

If saving the world was easy, it would have been done by now. The priorities for R-evolution are informed and set by two conditions:

  1. Urgent unmet demand for a solution to systemic and chronic failure within our environmental ecosystems.
  2. A clear indication that technology and investment offer a path to scalable sustainability that is profitable.

R-evolution will solve depletion and waste challenges in a way that also creates economic value. To do this requires a different approach, an equation that:

  • Addresses reality: converts global challenges into market demand
  • Adds expertise: leverages technology to unleash data’s full potential
  • Creates value: adheres to the principles of profitable operations
