Basic Policy on Human Rights

Under the Furukawa Electric Group Philosophy, the Group understands that the human rights of everyone affected by its globally expanding business activities  must be respected. The Group will respects human dignity and all human rights that are recognized internationally.

Furukawa Electric Group Human Rights Policy

In 2015, the United Nations (UN) adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Recently, social conditions and the business environment are changing dramatically. In this environment, companies are increasingly receiving diverse requests from stakeholders related to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, including respect for human rights. Considering the situation, the Group established the Furukawa Electric Group Human Rights Policy on January 27, 2020, to respect the human rights of all stakeholders affected by its business activities.

Whistleblowing System

In order to address violations of the Furukawa Electric Group CSR Code of Conduct, which includes provisions related to human rights, and concern over potential violations in the Group's business activities, the Group established an internal whistleblower desk and an external whistleblower desk, which uses an outside independent organization. Based on information obtained through the system, the Group takes steps to mitigate any negative effects by following appropriate procedures.

The Group company supports the UN Global Compact and has participated in it since February 2020.

サプライチェーンを含めた人権に関する取り組み

強制労働や児童労働、差別など、サプライチェーン全体における人権リスクへの関心が高まっています。当社グループでは、このような人権に対する社会的要請の変化や高まりを受け、「古河電工グループCSR行動規範」を2019年4月に改定するとともに、「古河電工グループ人権方針」を2020年1月に制定し、現在、人権デューディリジェンス実施に向けた取り組みを開始しております。

今後は、グループ各社およびパートナーの皆様と、「CSR調達ガイドライン」に基づくセルフチェックリスト(SAQ : Self-Assessment Questionnaire)調査を実施することで、人権に関する評価を行い、当社グループ の事業活動における負の影響を低減する活動を推進していきます。2021年度は、国内外グループ会社のうち79社と当社主要パートナー約50社を対象に調査を行い、順次調査範囲を拡大していく予定です。
