Halfords Group Plc operates retail stores across the UK and Ireland and garages throughout the UK. The products Halfords sells are sourced from a broad range of national and international suppliers. Many of those international supplier relationships are sourced and managed by our dedicated team based in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
We have a Code of Conduct on Ethical Trading, which sets out our policy on legislation, child labour, conditions of employment, wages and benefits, health and safety and the environment. The Code of Conduct on Ethical Trading includes our policy on human trafficking.
We undertake all reasonable and practical steps, including factory, warehouse and tied accommodation inspections and audits, to ensure that our standards are being implemented throughout the businesses of our suppliers and that local legislation and regulations are complied with. We will assess any instances of non-compliance on a case-by-case basis and will then tailor remedial action appropriately. We will only trade with those who fully comply with this policy or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance.
This statement was approved by our Board of Directors on 29 September 2017, and will be reviewed on an annual basis.
