Hexatronic Group's Climate Action Week
This week the companies in Hexatronic Group are participating in Climate Action Week. Our goal is to contribute to a more sustainable society by taking a holistic approach to sustainable development. As a global player in fiber expansion, we play an important role in the impact of current and future connectivity infrastructures. We want our actions now to contribute to a more sustainable society in the future.
Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, the world’s nations agreed to limit global warming to under 2 degrees Celsius, with the vision not to exceed 1.5°C.
In August 2021, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report, which reveals the following:
- The situation is serious, and we will be facing increasingly extreme weather moving forward
- We risk exceeding the 1.5°C target if we don’t act now
- There is no doubt whatsoever that mankind’s emissions of greenhouse gases have contributed to a rise in the global average temperature
- We are approaching threshold effects that could lead to unimagined and irreversible consequences
- Rapid and dramatic reductions in emissions are needed NOW if we are to achieve the 1.5°C goal
The UN Climate Change Conference, COP26 in Glasgow, is currently under way. The aim is that the world’s nations should go from words to action and present plans for fulfilling the promises of the 2015 Paris Agreement. Over the coming ten-year period, global climate emissions need to be halved, and to be almost zero by 2050.
Below are some of the significant sustainability areas:
- Low climate impact
- Sustainable supply chain
- Strong business ethics
- Good health, safety, and working environment
- Diversity and gender equality
- Social involvement
There are three dimensions that encompass the above areas:
- Economic responsibility
- Environmental responsibility
- Social responsibility
The companies of Hexatronic Group believe that we can help build towards a more sustainable society by focusing on these three dimensions of sustainability within our organizations.
We strive to be a positive force with a local and global presence, whereby the Group works and makes wise investments for the future.
Economic responsibility — for all companies in our Group — means taking responsibility for stable, profitable, yet ethically justifiable, development over time.
We shall protect the environment for present and future generations by preventing emissions and minimizing the use of resources in our product handling.
Environmental work shall be an integral part of our day-to-day work, and we strive to reduce our environmental impact locally and globally.
We see differences as an asset — working with diversity strengthens our expertise and thereby our competitiveness.
Together with our employees, customers and suppliers, we want to contribute to a more sustainable society. How we run our company and do business matters.
