Overall ESG ambition
Based on our philosophy of “think big and start small”, our team members at HYZON Motors have been building the foundations for zero emission mobility since 2003.
After accumulating almost 20 years of experience in the Hydrogen ecosystem we are now accelerating decarbonization in one of the hardest to abate sectors: heavy duty transportation.
As a responsible company, it is our ambition to provide environmental benefits to the world, in a socially responsible manner, and with the appropriate corporate governance framework.
Our ambition is to being an “environmental enabler”.
We want to equip private and public fleet operators with zero emission vehicles, helping them meet ambitious environmental standards and contribute to global decarbonization.
To that end, we have developed and continue to enhance our hydrogen fuel cells. HYZON hydrogen powered trucks, equipped with our own distinctive fuel cells (which lead the industry in power density) provide zero emission transportation to our customers. At the same time, we enable longer driving ranges between refuelling and fast recharge times, making them a compelling alternative to diesel engines.
HYZON is not only committed to providing zero emission mobility solutions but is actively engaged in building a clean hydrogen production network. The HYZON Low Carbon Alliance will bring stakeholders together in different countries to create national networks of local clean hydrogen production in an economically and environmentally efficient way.
HYZON is opening new facilities across the US and in Europe which will create green economy jobs in both locations.
Empowering our employees to build a zero-emission future, while ensuring their safety, diversity and quality at work, is of utmost importance to us.
HYZON has also undertaken several social Initiatives with a focus on social performance / community engagement:
- As a new company in its first years of operation, HYZON is establishing its overall priorities in relation to community engagement. Our first priority is education and the HYZON team are firm believers in equipping the younger generation with the knowledge and tools to enable them to make positive contributions. HYZON plans to fund a US non-profit organization supporting educational objectives in relation to environmental awareness and the world’s decarbonization challenge.
- HYZON has already made a commitment to the Horizon Educational Group, the leading global provider of sustainability model-oriented content, kits and programs for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, focused on educating the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators. The “HYZON Decarbonization Race” program will use a hands-on approach to empower school-age children to engage in real-world challenges relating to the energy transition in commercial vehicles, in a compelling competition format.

Given its global reach and ambition, HYZON commits to adhere to the best policy standards in particular in terms of anti-bribery and corruption, conflict of interest, remuneration policy and diversity.
