HMY: people, planet, profit
At HMY, our commitment goes behind the “economic” and towards investment in the “social” and the “environmental” domain. We focus on innovation to create solutions that are more eco-efficient. We start working, at design level, on materials, packaging and processes. We finish training our suppliers on our way of engineering, producing and transporting, to generate a positive cascade effect.
At HMY, sustainable industrial development means meeting the present needs of our factories without compromising the ability of future generations to inhabit the planet.
We work every day to reduce carbon footprint and the “ecological rucksack” of our products.
HMY: people care

We offer our staff in our 5 business units, 14 companies and 15 factories, located all over the world, social protection, health care and training for self-improvement.
At supply level, according our fair trade policy, we work with “ethical” suppliers, favoring small local business that we help in defining policies and procedures and those we incentivize to proceed on the path of people care with special payment terms.
At client level, with our instructions on the maintenance of our products and their constant improved durability, we try to minimize CO2 emissions.
Finally, at end-user level, we offer effective solutions in term of ergonomics, safety, security and duration.
At HMY, we believe that everybody has the right to the highest attainable standard of health.
