Respect for Human Rights
The most fundamental and essential aspect for each and every one of us is human rights. Individual dignity is at the core of our innate human rights, and if such rights are not respected, the employees who are crucial for company's growth cannot fully meet their potential, and we cannot continue as a company that is needed and valued by society.
Observing the following points will form the base for us to maximize the potential of all the people who are directly and indirectly affected by our business activities, as well as to generate societal value.
1. Respect of human rights
We respect and do not infringe on the human rights guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international declarations, conventions, guidelines and applicable laws and regulations, as well as judicial precedents.
2. Respect and promotion of diversity
We will embrace diversity to generate new value and contribute to a richer society through respecting, accepting, and being inspired by each employee's personality and individuality, unconstrained by differences in back grounds or beliefs.
3. Prohibition of discrimination
We respect one another as individuals, and do not discriminate on the grounds of nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, political opinions, ideologies, national or social origin, disability, etc., nor do we base decisions regarding hiring, promotion or advancements, benefits, or educational opportunities on these factors.
4. Prohibition of bullying and harassment
We do not speak or act in ways that degrade individual dignity or that disadvantage or threaten individuals based on issues such as gender, authority or position (sexual harassment or power harassment), nor do we engage in any other form of bullying or harassment.

We do not share or disclose information relating to individuals' private lives gained in the workplace or in the course of our duties without the clear consent of the individual concerned. We will appropriately manage any personal data we receive in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.

We aim to support employees' high performance in the workplace and their personal circumstances and responsibilities. In order to do this, we will work together to pursue the professional development of ourselves, our colleagues, and the people with whom we interact in the course of our duties, while we respect individual needs and are understanding of personal circumstances including family care responsibilities such as childcare and nursing care.
7. Prohibition of forced labor / child labor
We do not take part in any form of forced labor or child labor, including slave labor, bonded labor or human trafficking. We enable the free choice of employment through proper employment processes, and take required measures to prevent forced labor and child labor.

We comply with applicable occupational health and safety laws and regulations, such as those designed to prevent workplace accidents. We will give due consideration to the physical and mental health of ourselves, our colleagues, and the people with whom we work, and aim to maintain and enhance safe, healthy and fit working environments.
