Focus

Addressing Human Rights and Labor Issues

Addressing Human Rights and Labor Issues
Confirmation and Declaration of
the Abolition of Forced labour
Child labour

In fiscal 2015, we implemented an initiative targeting the global human rights and labor issues of child labor and forced labor to confirm that no company under the Group umbrella is involved in such practices and to declare that none will ever employ such practices. This style of confirmation and declaration, acknowledged and supported by the Global Compact Network Japan secretariat, was prepared in line with “Global Compact Labor Principles and Business Guidelines” and was signed by the presidents of all Group companies, including those overseas. In addition, all Group companies, including those overseas, prepared CSR Procurement Guidelines, which cover respect for human rights, and called on business partners to work as a team to uphold these guidelines.
