We adopted basic policies on human rights and compliance and created a compliance promotion structure that includes harassment. Five types of harassment (sexual, power, maternity, paternity and care harassment) are described under prohibitions in the rules of employment as requirements in the course of duties. Moreover, we have issued compliance programs and harassment guidelines and routinely conduct training and educational activities. We operate an effective whistleblowing system based on regulations that clearly define the responsibilities of various parties that handle reports. These regulations prohibit termination of employment and any other disadvantageous treatment of persons who use whistleblowers’ contact points and mandate confidentiality of information related to whistleblowing.
We respect the diverse ages, nationalities, genders, disabilities, values, workstyles, and other attributes of our employees, accept the differences among them, to ensure that all of our employees are able to fully demonstrate their capabilities and personal qualities.
We promote many initiatives to continue to make innovative change happen, relying on the strength of our employees' diversity.
We have established supply chain code of conduct and seek to strengthen cooperation with suppliers and business partners in an effort to address risk management for the labor environment along the entire supply chain, including human rights, the environment, fair trade and corruption prevention. We are working to prevent incidents and make improvements.
Prior to considering new important investment projects, we conduct ESG due diligence check on the seven core subjects (human rights related to forced labor and child labor, labor environment, safety and hygiene, and evaluation of impact of environmental risk, etc.) defined in the ISO 26000 framework.
