Japan: Toshiba's policy and management system on human rights

[From Toshiba website] In order to encourage the development of organizations imbued with respect for human rights and valuing diversity and creativity, Toshiba Group provides education on human rights to all employees.

"Toshiba Group Standards of Conduct" stipulates adherence to all relevant laws and regulations, respect for fundamental human rights, and prohibition of discriminatory treatment, child labor and forced labor. It requires that respect be accorded to diverse values, individuality, and privacy of individuals, prohibits discriminatory behavior based on race, religion, gender, nationality, disability, age, or sexual orientation, and prohibits physical abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of power, and any other actions that disregard the dignity and individuality of others.

Also, our participation in the UN Global Compact is another aspect of our support for universal principles concerning human rights and labor, and our determination to put those principles into practice.

We also recognize the importance of implementing our human rights policies not only within the Group but also throughout our supply chain. To this end, we stipulate the policy of respecting human rights in our supplier code of conduct "Supplier Expectations" and request their compliance with the policy, which we then verify through CSR surveys.

東芝グループは「世界人権宣言」や国際労働機関(ILO)の「労働における基本的原則および権利に関する宣言」など、人権や労働などに関する普遍的な原則を支持し実践する「国連グローバルコンパクト」への参加や、「国連ビジネスと人権指導原則」など、さまざまな国際規範を参照しています。

・国連グローバル・コンパクト
・世界人権宣言
・OECD多国籍企業行動指針
・国連ビジネスと人権指導原則
・ISO26000

こうした方針を東芝グループだけでなくサプライチェーンにわたって徹底していくことが重要であると認識しています。そこで、取引に際して調達取引先に提示する文書「調達取引先様へのお願い」に人権への配慮について明記し、遵守をお願いするとともに、CSR調査を通じて遵守状況を確認しています。
