Respect for Human Rights

With the progress of globalization, companies are trying to get to grips with international norms such as the World Declaration on Human Rights, the ILO’s Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. As such the YAMADA HOLDINGS Group is required to address human rights issues of various stakeholders affected by its business activities, and not just within the organization.
Along with reviewing the content of its respect for human rights in its CSR Code of Ethics, the YAMADA HOLDINGS Group has established a human rights policy which sets out the Group’s due diligence on human rights, the remedies and corrective measures to be taken in the face of human rights abuses, and education on human rights. The Group will continue to strive to fulfill its responsibility to respect human rights throughout all of its business activities.

Human Rights Initiatives

In fiscal 2022, the YAMADA HOLDINGS Group participated in the “My Declaration of Human Rights” project managed by the Ministry of Justice where the director in charge explained the importance of human rights in business and made a commitment to promote respect for human rights. In line with this, training is given on the theme of various human rights issues that arise in business, with the aim of raising awareness and building a culture of respect for human rights. In fiscal 2023, training was conducted using videos on human rights issues specific to foreign workers. In addition, we will conduct surveys of business partners and identify human rights issues by understanding their working environments.

* My Declaration of Human Rights is an initiative that aims to realize a society where everyone respects each other’s human rights, through declarations by companies, organizations, and individuals which express that they will take actions to respect human rights. For companies and organizations, the objective is to encourage human rights initiatives through management’s determination and commitment to respect human rights.
