We are aware that companies, no matter how big or small they are, have an impact on the world around them. In Hexagon, acting responsibly means more than just abiding to the law; it means that we must critically challenge all our actions in view of their impact on our entire environment. We want to know our counter parties, suppliers, customers and service providers alike, and we expect their code of conduct to be on par with ours. Fairness stands very high on our list: We demand from our suppliers and from our customers that they exercise utmost fairness towards their employees and towards their communities. In return we guarantee utmost fairness to our suppliers and our customers, and the communities where we are conducting our business and where we are living.
Hexagon is committed to give back to the community by donating a certain percentage of our profit. Our focus is on donating in those countries where we are active, and work with local partners who can help us utilize our funds efficiently and responsibly.
Giving is the most beautiful thing in the world
The founding partners have agreed upon that Hexagon should become a company that would not only talk about social responsibility and charity, but that it should live these values every day. We are convinced that it is legitimate for a company to strive after maximum profits, however we are equally convinced that a company should share part of its profits with those who are in need.
Among the thousands of areas where charity is welcome and necessary, Hexagon has decided to focus on the following three sectors:
Education Children Access to clean water
We are choosing our individual projects carefully: We do only support organizations that are secular and non-political, we are paying attention that these organizations have a low overhead, and that they are properly audited. We support our employees to take an active role and visit these organizations.
For the year 2020, we have decided to support the following two organizations:
Turkish Education Foundation (TEV)
Founded in 1967, TEV has gained a strong reputation for its honesty, integrity and commitment to improve the lives and career opportunities of its scholars. In line with its equal opportunity for education purpose, TEV provides thousands of scholarship every year in addition to building education facilities and supporting its scholars with online training and mentorship programmes.
Hexagon has set up a scholarship fund, called “The Hexagon Group Scholarship Fund” which will support a group of undergraduate students studying Agricultural Engineering or Medicine from September 2020 on.
Talita Fundacio Privada
Hexagon is sponsoring this private Spanish foundation that is dedicated to support children and young adults with intellectual and mental disabilities. Talita is accompanying these children and young adults from the moment when they are born, during the school years at both regular and particular schools and helps them with their integration into adult life.
