In August 2006, HLI launched an autonomous compliance management initiative called the Compliance Program (CP) where CP officers were appointed.
These officers prepared the CP rules and guidelines, and distributed the CP Manual to the employees under the initiative. The HLI employees held an event where they promised to commit themselves to the compliance program in August, 2011. Each of our business departments checks their own compliance performance in accordance with their respective CP plan. Moreover, HLI conducts surveys on the employees’ awareness of compliance and provides compliance education in order to raise our workforce’s awareness of and commitment to compliance and, by extension, HLI encourages partner companies to join the fairtrade move, practicing HLI’s management ideology of “prospering together alongside.”
