Basic Human Rights Policy
Recognizing that respect for human rights is a vital social responsibility for a company, the Tsubaki Group has established the Tsubaki Group Human Rights Policy to promote and fulfill its responsibilities of respect for human rights throughout the entire Tsubaki Group.
1. Compliance with Laws and Regulations
The Tsubaki Group respects international norms on human rights, such as the United Nations Bill of International Human Rights, which stipulates the fundamental human rights of all people, and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, which stipulates the fundamental rights at work of the ILO, and supports the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact.
We will also promote initiatives for the respect of human rights, in line with the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
2. Scope of Application
This policy applies to all Tsubaki Group officials and employees. We will also encourage all business partners related to the Tsubaki Group’s business activities to support this policy.
3. Respect for Human Rights
The Tsubaki Group prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity group, nationality, social status, origin, gender, disability, health status, thoughts and beliefs, sexual orientation, or differences in job type or employment status, as well as harassment that harms the dignity of individuals. We also promise to respect responsible labor practices, freedom of association and collective bargaining (including the provision of a safe working environment), the securing of minimum wages, and the proper management of working hours. We firmly condemn slave labor, human trafficking, forced labor, and child labor.
4. Implementation of Due Diligence Regarding Human Rights
We at the Tsubaki Group are aware of the negative impact that our business activities may have on human rights, and we conduct periodic risk assessments to identify this impact, while promoting initiatives to prevent and mitigate it.
We will endeavor to promptly take appropriate and effective action to remedy any negative impacts that occur.
The Tsubaki Group will provide appropriate training to the officers and employees so that this policy is incorporated into all activities of the Group.
6. Information Disclosure
The Tsubaki Group shall properly disclose information on the status of efforts toward respect for human rights based on this policy on our website, etc.
