haggar group's key CSI agenda

ISO 26000 Guidelines

ISO 26000 is the international standard developed to help organisations effectively assess and address those social
responsibilities that are relevant to their mission and vision; operations and processes; customers, employees, communities,
and other stakeholders; and environmental impact. As a member, Haggar is guided by its seven key underlying principles of
social responsibility: accountability, transparency, ethical behaviour, respect for stakeholder interests, respect for the rule
of law, respect for international norms of behaviour, and respect of human rights.

Haggar’s Corporate Sustainability & Social Impact department have built foundations upon the key principles of ISO 26000.
These are Organizational Governance, Human Rights, Labour Practices, Environment, Fair Operating Practices, Consumer
Issues and Community Involvement & Development. These principles guide us in regards to the development of new
policies, internal practices and external community projects, supporting Haggar in pinpointing its intended and desired
impacts within its business operations, and to its external communities and environment.
