Delivering Real Value to the World

TJX is the leading off-price retailer of apparel and home fashions worldwide, with seven retail chains operating more than 4,500 stores in nine countries spanning three continents. As a leader in global retail and a Fortune 100 company, we recognize the obligation we have to our key stakeholders – Associates, customers, communities, vendors, and shareholders – to operate a responsible business. At TJX, this includes operating and sourcing ethically to meet our customers’ desire for great value on ever-changing selections of high quality, fashionable, brand name and designer merchandise.

Our business dealings and interactions are grounded in our long-held core values of honesty, integrity, and treating others with dignity and respect.

We hold ourselves to high ethical standards. Our expectations are set forth in the TJX Global Code of Conduct, with which all Associates must agree to comply. We provide periodic training, both formal and informal, to reinforce these expectations.

As a responsible business, we are also are proud of our strong corporate governance practices. Our core Board of Directors practices and policies are reflected in our Corporate Governance Principles and Director Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. We seek to have a highly engaged Board that represents diversity as to experience, gender, ethnicity/race, and much more to provide sound, expert, and prudent guidance on our operations, strategy, and interests.

We expect high ethical standards from the merchandise vendors with whom we do business, and whose relationships are key to our success. We place great importance on our Vendor Code of Conduct with which we fully expect our vendors around the world to comply.

In addition to operating ethically, we aim to be a retailer of choice for consumers. This means that we challenge ourselves to find new and innovative ways to improve the shopping experience and engage with customers so that customers return to shop our stores again and again.1
