Three dimensions of sustainability


Economic responsibility

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.

Environmental responsibility

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.

Social responsibility

We see differences as an asset – working with diversity strengthens our expertise and thereby our competitiveness.

We aim to offer an inspiring working environment that contributes to job satisfaction and enjoyment. Our workplaces shall be equal, safe and secure, and free from drugs and sexual harassment. We shall support activities that work for a socially sustainable future.


Reducing the carbon footprint

Innovation is an essential part of the sustainability work at Hexatronic. Read this article, where we explain how we reduce the carbon footprint of fiber networks by miniaturizing products, using recycled material, and running production on facilities in Europe on renewable energy.
