Basic Approach and Policy
The Toyo Ink Group has been developing its business globally, with about 70 companies in over 20 countries around the world. This global expansion has made the Group's supply chains more complex.
Frameworks such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, and the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 require companies to fulfill their social responsibilities covering their supply chains. We therefore focus on initiatives in consideration of human rights, labor, the environment, and other factors by including our supply chains in the scope of our social responsibilities.
In addition, recognizing that business activities must be premised on respect for human rights, we specify rules related to respect for human rights, including the prohibition of child labor and forced labor, in our Code of Business Ethics and the Human Resources Policy. At the same time, we take comprehensive measures to ensure that these rules will be reflected in the overseas assignment training and that the guidelines will be applied and implemented at overseas Group companies.
