Operating sustainably

Operating sustainably

We uphold the highest sustainability standards across our internal operations and value chain.

Inspiring a greener, fairer approach

Hexagon actively supports and promotes the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) on the environment, labour practices, human rights and anti-corruption in its operations and in relation to external stakeholders.

In order to work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Hexagon takes accountability for the environmental, social and governance challenges in all steps of the value chain.
