Hitachi understands that respecting human rights in business activities is not only essential for corporate sustainable development, it is also a responsibility that all companies must fulfill. In 2013, to clarify corporate responsibility with respect to human rights, we established the Hitachi Group Human Rights Policy based on Hitachi’s Corporate Credo and Group Vision and designating it one of the highest codes governing our internal regulations.
Under the Hitachi Group Human Rights Policy, we pursue initiatives to ensure respect for human rights not just within Hitachi itself but for everyone in our supply chain or otherwise involved with our business activities, products, or services. As well as implementing global training and awareness-raising activities and establishing grievance mechanisms to address employee concerns throughout the Hitachi Group, in recent years we have focused on human rights due diligence (HRDD), working to construct frameworks and systems for recognizing and reducing human rights risks.
