Haglöfs denies mention in article
On Thursday the 3rd of April the Swedish magazine Dagens ETC published an article about the working conditions in Cambodia and Bangladesh. In this article Haglöfs is wrongly referred to as a company that manufactures clothing in these low- wage countries.
”In our article Haglöfs is incorrectly mentioned as one of the clothing brands that have factories Cambodia. We apologize for the mistake and have corrected the web based article as well as posted a correction in the magazine” says Maria Holm, managing editor at Dagens ETC.
Haglöfs’ production is determined by the company’s “Code of Labour Practices”, a non-negotiable requirement that all its manufacturers, without exception, must follow. Haglöfs is further a member of the Fair Wear Foundation meaning that it is committed to trade only in products that have been produced under fair working conditions, and that it actively works to keep the wages within the textile industry on a living wage level.
