The LIXIL Group strives to uphold stakeholders' human rights in all of its operations, including end-users, business partners or other suppliers, residents living near our factories and facilities, and our employees. In March 2016, we published the LIXIL Group Human Rights Principles, which align with a number of international guidelines, including the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Furthermore, we will adhere to the higher commitment if there are any discrepancies between the internationally recognized human rights standards and the laws and regulations of individual countries or regions.
The LIXIL Group has also established an internal concern-raising system for reporting concerns relating to the entire Group, including overseas subsidiaries, and accepts information regarding any LIXIL Group compliance violations from materials suppliers, subcontractors, and other business partners.
LIXIL Corporation promotes human rights principles among all employees in Japan. In FY2016, we sought to deepen understanding of human rights issues in business by implementing a human rights principles education program in interactive departmental meetings, and encouraged employees to discuss issues amongst each other. Going forward, we will promote human right principles more broadly across the whole Group. Moreover, as a global company, we will strengthen human rights due diligence processes and disclose the results.
* Due diligence on human rights: to put in place measures that identify, prevent, reduce, or respond to any negative impact on human rights caused by the activities of a company or its related companies, and to regularly monitor their effectiveness.
