Maxell Europe Limited, Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Maxell Europe Limited operates a pan European head office and a manufacturing site within the UK. The products Maxell sell are sourced from a broad range of local, national and international suppliers. Many of these international supply chain relationships are sourced and managed by our parent company Hitachi Maxell based in Japan.
We have a current Group Code of Conduct referencing Ethical Trading, which sets out our clear policy on human rights, legislation, child labour, conditions of employment, wages and benefits, health and safety and the environment. The Group Code of Conduct will be reviewed on a regular basis to include our statement 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 take remedial action where appropriate. We will only trade with organisations in our supply chain who fully comply with this policy or those who are taking evidential steps towards compliance.
This statement has been approved by our Board of Directors, who will review and update it as necessary on an annual basis.

'‘Corporate Citizenship’ is for many companies just another buzz phrase to pay lip service to. For Maxell, it is a concept that underpins every activity we undertake.
Maxell believes that corporate activity should be run in such a way as to have a positive effect on the world in which we live. For us that means a total commitment to tackling environmental issues and minimising any impact our business might have on our surroundings. To that end, the company has established a series of Environment Promotion Offices to run in conjunction with our manufacturing and trading operations. Their job is to rigorously enforce Maxell’s environment protection policy, and promote new ways of running our business in harmony with the world around us.
The policy stands on four key principles:
• All production activities must be environmentally considerate
• A commitment to make products that are environmentally friendly
• Co-existence with local communities
• Environmental management, that actively promotes these three principles and aims for harmony among them.
These standards are under constant revision as we strive to meet even stricter targets for emissions and the minimising of environmental impact.
We have built our approach on providing our customers with an efficient, high quality, adaptable and responsive service with continuous improvement. We take Corporate Social Responsibility and safety very seriously.
Maxell Europe is regularly audited and has passed a Certificate of Approval from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance to follow the Environmental Management System: ISO 14001:2004.
