Brand Performance Check 2017
Haglöfs has shown progress and met most of FWF’s performance requirements. Besides using FWF audit teams to audit production locations Haglöfs uses external audits to reach its monitoring threshold. The company’s monitoring percentage of 85%, combined with its benchmark score of 72, means that FWF has awarded Haglöfs the ‘Good’ rating.
Due to changes in CSR staff at Haglöfs in 2016, there was a lack of clarity regarding resolutions of Corrective Action Plans from 2014 and 2015. During the second half of 2016, the company started implementing a different process to ensure more active follow-up and clearer documentation.
In 2016, Haglöfs started to work more closely with its parent company, Asics, to address labour standards in shared factories. In addition, the company started a pilot project to address living wages at one of the suppliers it shares with other FWF members. This project will show initial results in 2017.
For 2017, there are a number of topics that need Haglöfs’ attention. Firstly, the company needs to ensure that audits also occur at all production locations where more than 2% of production takes place, or where the company has over 10% leverage. In addition, it needs to further intensify its involvement in remediation and CAP follow-up at production locations it shares with Asics. Lastly, Haglöfs should support its production locations in training on labour standards, for example by enrolling them in the FWF Workplace Education Programme.
