Hitachi's response

Author: Hitachi, Published on: 15 March 2019

The Hitachi Group (Hitachi) appreciates the concerns raised in the report... by Electronics Watch... In the report, Hitachi is referred as one of the brand customers of Cal-Comp Electronics, Thailand. According to our investigation, although we have no direct transaction with them, we purchase electronic devices from companies listed in the report...

 Hitachi acknowledges that the human rights are threatened by the forced labor in Thailand and other South East Asia and has recently translated Hitachi Group CSR Procurement Guideline in Thai in an effort to further minimize the human rights risk: http://www.hitachi.co.jp/procurement/csr/__icsFiles/afieldfile/2018/09/1... Hitachi is committed to consider human rights as a priority in our business activity, and will continue calling our suppliers for more engagement and compliance of the Guideline to ensure that human rights abuse including forced labor does not happen in our supply chain.
