Our commitment to sustainability forms the foundation of Hartalega, guiding us forward as we strive to grow in a responsible manner. We are focused on creating a culture and ecosystem that benefits not only the company and our stakeholders, but also makes a positive impact on society.
This is reflected in our Sustainability Vision of caring, sharing and creating long-lasting benefits for the community, environment, marketplace and workplace. Our sustainability approach is underpinned by our Economic, Environmental and Social pillars, with key initiatives aligned with the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We undertake multiple sustainability focused programmes on an annual basis. Our community centred programmes enrich the lives of the communities around us and contribute to nation-building efforts. In all that we do, we advocate the fair and equitable treatment of every Hartanian and ensure that their welfare is justly protected without discrimination. At the same time, we are committed to continually improving, adapting and monitoring all aspects of our operations to ensure sustainable growth.
Our sustainability vision encapsulates four dimensions:
We work closely with like-minded volunteers, partners and government agencies to create more inclusive opportunities that empower communities. To this end, Hartalega regularly organises various community-based programmes and initiatives.
Our people form the bedrock of our success. We will always place great importance on the growth and wellbeing of all Hartanians. To safeguard our people, we have established comprehensive policies, including measures that are specifically designed to ensure the welfare of our migrant employees.
As the world’s leading nitrile glove manufacturer, we are conscious of ensuring that the highest levels of integrity are entrenched in all our business practices. Our corporate culture centred on innovation and compliance ensures that we deliver only the best products that resonate with market needs.
As a conscientious and caring corporate citizen, we are committed to responsible stewardship of the environment. We conduct our business in a responsible manner by implementing comprehensive measures to manage our utilisation of resources and reduce our carbon footprint.
“In the beginning, we undertook our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) work for the benefit of the communities we operated within, namely Bestari Jaya and Sepang. Today, with the establishment of Yayasan Hartalega, we are able to expand our reach beyond our threshold, in order to carry out more impactful and far-reaching projects with a special focus on the areas of education, health and the environment.”
