Our Promise to the Planet
Our Promise to Philanthropy
Ever since at least the year 2000, numerous scientists have argued that we live in a new geological age: the Anthropocene. Our environment is being profoundly altered by human activities (‘Anthrop’ means ‘human’), like burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and over-reliance on disposable plastics. These practices pose many dangers to life on earth – we just don’t know the full scale of the threat.
But we know one thing: the future of the planet is in our hands.
It is every organisations’ responsibility to recognise the unique challenges we now all face together and to ensure that operations and strategies don’t just serve business interests – they must serve the environment’s interests too.
As an influential company operating in every corner of the globe, we understand the impact we can have on the environment and take our responsibilities seriously. The world is changing, and at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, our business proposition and our ethics are completely aligned: we want to make that change for the better.
It is through their application in production processes that our products could have the most significant environmental impact. This is why environmental concerns are integrated into the design process for all our products, from developing eco-mode features that increase energy efficiency to production monitoring tools that reduce consumption of components and raw materials.
In today’s world, as global warming stands in the spotlight of the global stage, companies can’t afford to separate profit from protecting the environment. By helping manufacturers to be more efficient, to use less resources, and to extend the lifecycle of their solutions, we place environmental and economic sustainability at the heart of our business model.
We have a deep affinity with our charity partner Wings for Life
, a non-profit that funds world-class research and clinical trials to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Every year, our employees join thousands of participants in the Wings for Life World Run
. Hexagon matches each participating employee’s entry fee, 100% of which goes directly to the charity.
We support our staff's fundraising throughout the regions, from events in support of various charities to long-term initiatives raising money and awareness for a cause close to an employee’s heart.
With facilities all over the world, Hexagon has been welcomed by many communities, giving their support, talent, and resources to our business. This makes us a global company with local heart, and it’s important to us to give something back. Our local initiatives range from donating technologies to non-profits training military veterans, through sponsorship of sports clubs bringing excitement and social engagement to their communities, to partnering with universities to develop the future talent of local manufacturing.
Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices continue to grow, and nothing makes us prouder than to know how deeply philanthropy flows through Hexagon’s veins.
