Haglöfs Performance Check 2015
Haglofs meets most of FWFs management system requirements. It has a monitoring threshold of 86%, which is just below the required 90% monitoring
threshold for the third year of membership. The monitoring threshold was not reached partly due to the unexpected closing of a factory and an increase in
the sales of footwear. As Haglofs has a high benchmarking score of 70, FWF uses its discretionary power to keep Haglofs within the ‘Good’ category.
In terms of sourcing, Haglofs has taken a number of steps towards creating systematic room for better social compliance at the factory. It has identified the
suppliers with which it would like to enter into a partnership with, and laid the groundwork for getting open costing on a product level. In addition to this,
Haglofs continues to work towards addressing overtime by better streamlining its production and order flow process.
Haglofs makes use of Asics technology in its footwear. Over the past years but especially in 2014, the footwear sales have increased significantly, meaning
that the footwear factories have increased in importance for Haglofs. For this reason, FWF encourages Haglofs to align itself more closely with Asics in
monitoring and follow-up of these factories. Haglofs can make use of Asics’ leverage at the factories to effect change while Asics can benefit from the
experience and insights Haglofs has gained during its FWF membership.
FWF encourages Haglofs to continue in its efforts with WEP training sessions and CAP follow-up.
