Human Rights Promotion System
The human rights issues included are those related to child labor, forced labor, discrimination, harassment, wages, working hours, occupational safety and health, etc. The scope of the target also extends to all business activities and is not limited to our company but also applies to our business partners. In our everyday duties, relevant departments in the Global Headquarters (Human Resources Department, Risk Management Department, Social Value Creation Division, Supply & Purchasing Department) work together with various departments and domestic and overseas group companies to further the promotion of human rights.
