Sustainability is nothing new in terms of Hexagon’s commitment to improving the state of the world, and we are proud to announce that Hexagon’s Mining division has received the EcoVadis Gold Sustainability Rating, putting us in the top third percentile of companies assessed. The Sustainability Scorecard that EcoVadis uses recognizes performance across 21 indicators in four themes: environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. We were assessed under the “manufacturers of computers and peripheral equipment” category, and we surpassed industry averages in every measured category by providing evidence of our policies, processes, and progress against key ESG metrics.
“Mining has always focused not only on driving sustainable change via our solutions but also through our actions. We are thrilled to have our efforts acknowledged and will continue to move initiatives forward for our business, the industry, and the planet,” said Louise Daw, Senior Director, ESG.
We are always working toward a brighter future for our planet, and the Gold sustainability rating we received from EcoVadis demonstrates to our customers, employees, and the communities we are involved with that we are dedicated to continued sustainability efforts, with top priorities including increasing the number of women in management positions, working towards net-zero emissions in our operations, and working with our suppliers to continue to augment the mining industry’s contribution to overall sustainability objectives.
Hexagon’s initiatives are aligned with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals, the Responsible Business Alliance, and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), showing our multi-faceted approach and commitment to sustainability. Additionally, we support our customers in their sustainability efforts through successful implementation of innovative life of mine solutions from the mine’s planning stages to operational emissions reductions and beyond.
