Does Hisense have a Code of Conduct?

Hisense has a Code of Conduct which states that the minimum age of work is 16 with the exception of workplace learning programmes where the minimum age is 14.  However, the rules around working hours are vague and only specify that they comply with local law. Some countries do not have a limit on working hours, so workers in these countries could be working over 60 hours a week.

As a result, Hisense receives a middle rating for its Code of Conduct.

Hisense receives a bottom rating for our Environmental Report category.

Hisense has an ESG Report, however, it is out of date, brief and does not contain any targets.
