Corporate Social Responsibility

We are working to change the world. And we are just getting started…

At HEXO Corp, our goal is to be one of Canada’s leading cannabis producers and processors. We know that if we want to achieve our goal, we need to think about more than just our products and prices. We must also examine the way our operations impact the natural and social environment on a local, provincial and national level. HEXO Corp is monitoring and reporting on its greenhouse gas emissions, setting targets to reduce them, and offsetting its footprint. As members of the Global Cannabis Partnership, we will also be reporting on other Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) impact areas based on Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) standards. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Charter focuses on four priorities: People, Public, Products and Planet.
