Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability

Our prosperity – and that of our customers – depends on society and nature being healthy. There are however challenges, such as population growth, resource scarcity, climate change and social inequality, that threaten this health. That’s why we have made a deep commitment to sustainability and aim to become the sustainability benchmark within the steel industry

Sustainable development is the only option

Without considering the environment and the world around us, financial strength and success are unattainable. And vice versa, the dependency is mutual. This is the core of sustainable development for Höganäs.

As a company, Höganäs makes a difference through our metal powder solutions and know-how. We believe that metal powders can and should be used in industry to a much larger extend than today and that they can contribute to sustainable growth. That is why our vision is “Inspire industry to make more with less”.

Höganäs participates in the UN Global Compact (UNGC). This voluntary corporate citizenship initiative was launched in 2000 to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt and implement sustainable and socially responsible policies. We have committed to uphold the UNGC’s Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and make continuous efforts to achieve sustainable development.

The goal for Höganäs is to be a catalyst for change and a role model within industrial sustainability. We aim to go above and beyond what regulations require us to do. We strive to find ways to make every community we are a part of a healthy and respectful place to live.

We adhere to high standards of business ethics in all our relations and operations. This engagement forms the basis of our Code of Conduct, which clarifies the way we do business.
