We report annually our concrete activities for the pursuit of the Global Compact Principles to the UN Global Compact and participate in the working groups including “Human Rights Due Diligence “subcommittee of the Global Compact Network Japan.
We have also established the Global Compact Secondary Meeting, where related departments work together to share and resolve issues.
