Environment

Global warming and the rapid use of finite resources compel us to act. At Hager Group, we invest in initiatives thatpreserve our world for future generations.We made a sustainable approach to the environment one of our key business priorities.  

With our Blue Planet Commitment, we contribute to fighting climate change, minimising our impact on the environment and promoting a circular economy.

Matthieu Alexandropoulos, Environmental Sustainability Director

A lifelong commitment to the planet. 

At Hager Group, we manufacture products and offer electrical solutions all over the world. Sourcing, production, usage and disposal build a complex lifecycle that comes with emissions and waste. We are well aware of the risks and the impact this has on society and the environment. That is why at Hager Group we are committed to reducing waste and emissions considerately by investing in an environmentally friendly, circular approach, the longevity and quality of our products and more sustainable solutions in production and distribution. 

Part of this is putting our entire process, from sourcing materials to end-of-product-life, under intense scrutiny to analyse exactly what our environmental impact is. For this we measure in CO2 equivalents. 

Why? Because as a company we have committed to supporting the Paris Climate Agreement and with it the limit of 1.5 degrees to global warming. And here’s why we’re speaking candidly, to achieve this, we must dramatically cut our CO2 emissions.  

Our detailed action plan to get there is called the Blue Planet Commitment. 

Whilst there are various visible initiatives such as the transition to less packaging made from recycled materials, many of the actions which advance a circular economy and substantially reduce our CO2 emissions are hidden from plain sight despite the magnitude of our task. 


Less emissions
We are working on cutting our direct CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030
 
Sustainable packaging
By 2024 our packaging will be 100% sustainable

Take our products for instanceOne of the most overlooked contributions to sustainability are our products themselves: their longevity means they rarely need replacing, which means less waste. And the plastic in many of our products? Our material scientists are working on finding viable substitutes, either with recycled plastic or altogether different materials. The role of eco-design within Hager Group has gained substantially in importance. It is part of our journey to a circular economy. However, it is not easily done when product safety is of such importance.

Or look at our efforts in logistics: by opening new logistics centres and switching to a hub and spoke system, we’re optimising our deliveries, cutting CO2 emissions as we do so.  


New materials
Around 200 plastic components in our products are made of recycled plastic. 
 
Reducing virgin plastic in packaging
A 10% decrease in 2021 and we are on track to decreasing it by 30% by the end of 2022.
