Our FY20 sustainability report is now available, detailing our updated sustainability strategy including Science Based Targets, achievements, and alignment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The ‘Innovation with Purpose’ report can be viewed below and illustrates how we have made significant progress across our sustainability programme. Initiatives rolled-out over the last year include new and improved Environmental Calculator technology, our first Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) submission and various sustainable solutions delivered via our ecosystem of suppliers.
Watch Robert MacMillan, our Global CEO, explain our commitment to ESG and the recognition we've received as a result of our 'Innovation with Purpose' sustainability programme:

We are committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of our sustainability strategy, “Innovation with Purpose.” Our contribution through fostering sustainable practices in marketing execution allow us to focus our contribution on four of the goals.
Promote sustained inclusive and sustainable economic growth
We are committed to ensuring that HH Global is a great place to work, and that our suppliers provide decent working conditions for their employees with a fair wage and strong employee rights.
Our employees and our suppliers are the heart of our business. We are proud of our supportive and innovative culture, and we work hard to make sure that our suppliers uphold our values throughout the entire supply chain. We support the International Labour Organisation’s declaration on fundamental principles and rights at work and have strong processes in place to ensure our suppliers are adhering to these principles.
We believe that the rights and opportunities of every person should be respected, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background.
We are committed to ensuring that HH Global is a diverse and inclusive business that reflects the communities in which we operate. We work with suppliers that share our values and are working to make sure that these are upheld throughout our entire supply chain.
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
We will ensure products are sourced and produced responsibly, while also helping our clients to look at more sustainable forms of consumption.
We are committed to responsible consumption and production by reducing the material footprint of the products we purchase and supply. Our environmental targets recognise the carbon associated with the production of these products, and we will also work to ensure that the goods and services we provide contribute to a circular economy. By promoting sustainable product choices, we can assess the impact of marketing programmes on natural resources and seek to minimise these. To drive progress of our strategy we have developed environmental reporting dashboards that we can offer to all clients globally. We are then able to provide initiatives that promote responsible consumption and production, with measurable savings.
In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that climate change poses a serious threat to our way of life. Governments, citizens, and businesses need to take urgent action to prevent catastrophic global warming.
The Paris Climate Change agreement committed to keep global warming below 2C by 2100, and ideally below 1.5C. To meet this target, the science shows that we collectively need to act and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide, which are responsible for global warming.
As we do not manufacture products, the direct environmental impact of our business is low. However, as a provider of goods and services to the world’s largest brands, we are still indirectly responsible for a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
We have analysed our direct and indirect carbon footprint inline with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The impact of our purchased goods and services is by far away the greatest contributor to our carbon footprint and it is clear we need to take action - particularly as our business is growing rapidly.
