By Helen Adams
Diversity, inclusion, employee rights and combating climate change are included in HH Global's ESG targets

HH Global is a global marketing provider. Headquartered in Leatherhead, UK, and with a revenue of £132m, a recent objective of the company is to develop its holistic approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities. 

In 2020 HH Global joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to create a clearly-defined path for emissions reductions. Previously, the company had adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a blueprint for positively influencing global challenges. 

The company hopes to demonstrate its leadership in this area by showing clients, colleagues and suppliers how these commitments are relevant to supporting the whole of its supply chain. 

HH Global has announced its new ESG targets:


Sustainable economic growth

HH Global are committed to ensuring that suppliers provide decent working conditions for their employees, with a fair wage and strong employee rights.

Targets include:

  • Employees will be paid a Living Wage and the company will require confirmation of a Living Wage policy from 100% of our Tier 1 (direct) suppliers* by 2025
  • 100% of the Tier 1 (direct) suppliers* must align with the clearly defined environmental and social standards by 2025
