In April 2007, Hager Group signed up to the Global Compact, a voluntary business initiative supervised by the United Nations (UN). The aim of the pact, which now has over 10,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 130 countries, is to foster corporate social responsibility – and thus make the globalisation process more social and ecological.

Hager Group approach
In fact, Global Compact values correspond to those held by Hager Group. For in terms of corporate social responsibility, we take our lead from the principles set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations, from the Core Labour Standards of the International Labour Organisation and from the guidelines issued by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for international corporations. This approach being a matter of course at Hager, we strive within the sphere of our influence to make a sound contribution to safeguarding human rights. Moreover, we place great value on working with suppliers and business partners who also act in compliance with the ethical values set out in the UNGC.
