Sustainable development is the only option

Our prosperity – and that of our customers – depends on society and natural environment being healthy. However, there are challenges, such as population growth, resource scarcity, climate change and social inequality, which 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.

Financial strength and success are unattainable if we disregard the environment and world around us. And vice versa, the dependency is mutual. For Höganäs this is the core of sustainable development.

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”.

What we do

Sustainability and Höganäs

Höganäs strives to be a catalyst for change and become a truly sustainable business. For us, environmental and social care, and business success are intertwined, and we cannot achieve one without the other. Our products – metal powders – not only enable our customers to reduce their material and energy consumption, but also help improve the efficiency and lifecycle costs of their final products. Our vision is to “Inspire industry to make more with less”. We continue the integration of sustainability in our business planning, and sustainability is increasingly seen as a natural part of discussions throughout the company.
