We are living in a world where “growth” is indispensable. We are also living in a society where everybody wants to possess a smart phone, a washing machine and a car; we are changing our diet towards more protein, and last but not least we are consuming more and more energy. This standard of living comes at a tremendous cost, a cost that is hardly measurable but a cost that is undisputed. Among other things, the cost is reflected in global warming with alarming consequences, it is felt in the form of increasing pollution of our air, our drinking water and our oceans; in brief, it is a cost that jeopardizes the well being of our planet. Thousands of experts and scientists are trying to assess the impact of our lifestyle and come up with solutions as to what we must do to stop this development but at the same time ideally keep our standard of living in the first world, and enable the second and the third world to raise their standard of living to our level.
This is a global problem that can only be solved if we all work together. We are aware that we as Hexagon can’t rescue the world, we also know that we do not have the expertise to present solutions for these complex problems, however what we can do as a company is support those who have ideas, skills and the stamina to make the world a cleaner place. The “Hexagon Green Fund” supports projects, private initiatives and organizations that are engaged in different forms in the protection of the environment. The projects are chosen carefully, they must be totally disconnected from politics, and they must pass our compliance respectively KYC requirements.Close ›
