Hypertherm, which makes industrial cutting systems and software, has published its 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report.

According to the company, the report shows that all but one of Hypertherm’s global teams has achieved at least One Leaf status as part of Hypertherm’s Greener Cuts internal certification process and that 85% of company associates participated in the company’s Community Service Time program. The company also provided financial support to more than 100 nonprofits through its Hypertherm Owners’ Philanthropic Endeavors (HOPE) Foundation.

Hypertherm says that its environmental gains include the diversion of more than 2,500 metric tons of waste from landfills, the addition of several vehicle charging stations to its two largest New Hampshire locations, and more efficient electricity use despite increased production. Hypertherm also reports a safety incidence rate of two compared with an industry average of 4.1.

‘Hypertherm is making steady progress toward its CSR goals and our journey will never end,’ said Jenny Levy, Hypertherm’s vice-president of people, community, and environment. ‘We are working to balance the needs of our industrial cutting business with people and the planet, which we know will make our business stronger for the long term.’
