who we are
Social responsibility for us is just the right thing to do. Central to our identity is a
genuine commitment to corporate responsibility, a fundamental component of how we run our business.
J.Jill prides itself on conducting business in accordance with the highest ethical standards
and laws of the United States and the countries where our merchandise is made. The integrity of
the production process is just as important as the quality of the products we sell. J.Jill therefore
seeks to partner only with suppliers whose values and practices coincide with J.Jill standards as
set forth in our Code of Conduct for Suppliers.
J.Jill employs experienced senior executives who exercise tight controls by utilizing a strict series
of policies and procedures to validate and approve suppliers and regularly monitor their compliance.
In partnering with our global supplier base to produce our merchandise, we seek to develop and
continually foster an atmosphere of social responsibility. As part of this commitment, we expect our
suppliers to comply with the terms of our vendor compliance program, which sets forth minimum standards
relating to, among other things, child labor, forced labor, human trafficking, discrimination, working
hours, compensation and working conditions.
To help facilitate our ability to monitor compliance with our standards, we engage a highly regarded
international independent monitoring firm to conduct unannounced facility visits and private worker
interviews for the purpose of certifying compliance. If deficiencies are found, our first step is to
work with suppliers to take corrective actions, unless the deficiencies are severe or it becomes clear
to us that our suppliers demonstrate no commitment to our social responsibility goals. In that case, we
will cease working with them.
