Hai Robotics, a provider of autonomous case-handling robots (ACR) systems, has joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative—the largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative. Hai Robotics joins thousands of firms across 160 countries that are committed to taking responsible business action to build a more sustainable and inclusive society.

What does Hai Robotics bring to the program?

Hai Robotics commits to uphold the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and support the United Nations in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Hai Robotics will also share an annual Communication on Progress to showcase its continued engagement.

Hai Robotics is actively involved in reducing its environmental footprint through sustainable business practices. It implements action in sustainable sourcing to hold itself accountable across all stages of the supply chain, such as the use of composite wood in packaging.

Hai Robotics will now evaluate its ESG activities and support for clients to ensure they align with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and create positive impact. For more information on Hai’s ESG efforts and commitment, click here to access their annual sustainability report.

Commenting on the move, Richie Chen, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Hai Robotics, said, “At Hai Robotics, we view sustainability as crucial in driving our long-term growth and resilience, and strive to serve as a responsible corporate citizen for our stakeholders.”

“We are excited to join the UN Global Compact in its mission to accelerate corporate sustainability. As a company continuing to expand globally, we recognize the growing importance of incorporating ESG increasingly into our business strategy,” Chen added.

“Participating in the UN Global Compact is critical in the improvement of our sustainability efforts during the development of warehouse automation solutions,” Richie Chen said.

As the largest corporate sustainability initiative on the face of the planet, the UN Global Compact consists of more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories across over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks. The Sustainable Development Goals consist of 17 global goals aimed to tackle societal issues and improve the quality of life by 2030, covering five key areas of people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership.
