Brand Performance Check 2018
Haglöfs has shown advanced results on performance indicators and has made exceptional progress. The company audited 8 production locations in 2017 and increased its monitoring percentage by almost 15% to 98%. This in combination with a benchmark score of 79 means FWF has awarded Haglöfs ‘Leader’ status.
In 2017, the company improved its internal structures related to monitoring and remediation. It audited some of its tail-end suppliers and could show active CAP follow-up. The company cooperates with FWF members and non-FWF members in addressing audit results and worker complaints and takes an active role in this. In 2017, the company also organised two WEP trainings at its production locations.
There are some topics that need continued attention, such as production planning and addressing root causes of excessive overtime and the link between the company’s prices and wages paid to workers. During the performance check this was discussed extensively and will be addressed in 2018. Additionally, Haglöfs needs to develop clear policies and procedures to address the country-specific risks related to Syrian refugees in Turkey, since it started production in the country in 2017.
Benchmarking score: 79, % under monitoring: 98, Category: Leader
