Social Compliance Program


TJX’s Global Social Compliance Program is inspired by the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

We strongly value our vendor relationships as we believe they have been a key factor in our long-term success. On a worldwide basis, in 2020, TJX had more than 1,100 Associates in its buying organization who source merchandise in a variety of ways from a universe of approximately 21,000 vendors and over 100 countries around the world. Sometimes when what we are seeing in the marketplace is not the right value for our customers, meaning the right combination of brand, fashion, price, and quality, we may help design or develop merchandise to be manufactured just for us. We focus our auditing efforts on the factories that manufacture this merchandise because we believe this is where we are most likely to be able to have a meaningful impact.

Our philosophy towards social compliance mirrors our culture, and just as we are committed to honesty, integrity, and treating others with dignity and respect, we expect those that we do business with to do the same. Our Global Social Compliance Program is inspired by the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Our commitment to these principles is reflected in our Vendor Code of Conduct, which serves as the foundation for our program and our responsible sourcing initiatives.
