Haggar Group companies, a member of the United Nations Global Compact

June 02, 2018 | Haggar CSI Division

Haggar Group companies in The Republic of Sudan, under the umbrella of Haggar Company Limited, have become a member of the United Nations Global Compact back in April 2017, although the history with the local network goes back to 2008 with Syd Anis G. Haggar being one of the local network founders.
The UNGC is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative calling for companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance Sustainability Development Goals.

Being a signatory requires submitting a Communication on Progress (COP) Report as an annual disclosure through which the business informs stakeholders about its efforts to implement the principles of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact and promotion of SDGs.

The Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact are derived from: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labor Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

Haggar’s COP has been submitted on June 1st, 2018 and has been differentiated by the UNGC as “GC Active”. This indicates that it includes a message of commitment from the CEO, a description of practical actions (disclosure of relevant policies, procedures, activities) that the company has been taking to implement the Global Compact principles in each of the four thematic areas (human rights, labour, environment, anti-corruption) as well as measurements of outcomes (carbon foot printing, employed persons satisfaction indices, etc…).

This is considered as an important milestone achieved towards the commitment to embedding Corporate Sustainability across all the Group’s functions and strategic decisions.
