We integrate sustainability throughout our Company through a strong accountability system that includes oversight from the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee of our Board of Directors and our Chief Sustainability Officer, who sets our strategic sustainability agenda along with the CEO and Senior Management. We also have policies and practices to guide our operations, including policies on ethical conduct, political contributions and lobbying.
The Tiffany & Co. Internal Audit Department, the head of which reports to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, provides independent, objective assurance and control advisory services to the Company to evaluate the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.
We have established training programs to help ensure that employees are operating in an ethical fashion. We also have global reporting mechanisms and a dedicated Global Compliance and Privacy team within Tiffany’s Legal department, in addition to the Board-level oversight referenced above, to help ensure accountability.
