Heights Jewelers Responsible Sourcing Policy
Mission: Heights Jewelers has the objective to operate as a responsible specialty jewelry supplier, delivering increasing value to our partners, while seeking to uphold our Social, Ethical and Environmental Principles and considering the interests of our other stakeholders: customers, those with whom we do business, and society as a whole. In seeking to achieve our objective we recognize that there are indirect impacts generated by our activities, in particular through our supply chain. We will seek to use our influence with those with whom we do business directly, in particular our agents and their downstream suppliers, to promote the achievement of our Social, Ethical and Environmental Principles.
As a manufacturer we believe we have an opportunity to seek to influence the social, ethical and environmental performance of our suppliers in a positive manner. In order to do so it is necessary that our immediate suppliers, and in turn their suppliers, should understand Heights Jewelers' standards as set out in our Heights Jewelers Responsible Sourcing Policy (HJRSP). Therefore, we make every effort to ensure that this Code is communicated throughout our supply chain. Heights Jewelers is fully committed to the responsible sourcing of our products and the respect of human rights, and we expect the same from our suppliers around the world.
We continually strive to assure our customers, employees, investors and other stakeholders that our supply chain avoids action that may directly or indirectly finance armed conflict and serious human rights violations around the world including the Democratic Republic of Congo and its adjoining countries.
