Initiatives of the Oji Group

コンテンツ

Respect for Human Rights

The Oji Group stipulates in its Oji Group Behavior Standard that its business activities should be conducted by respecting the human rights of all its stakeholders, including employees.

[Oji Group Behavior Standard]

We will respect the fundamental human rights of all people, and will not unfairly discriminate or harass individuals according to their philosophy and beliefs, nationality, birthplace, religion, race, sex, disability, social status, status within the company, etc., and will not invade their privacy. We will not allow others to do so.

In accordance with the spirit of the above standard, we carry out the following activities globally so that our corporate activities are promoted without discrimination based on race, age, or disability.

We have built a system for promoting compliance activities by establishing the Corporate Compliance Department of Oji Holdings and compliance leaders at domestic and overseas Group companies. To prevent harassment, we raise awareness of respect for human rights through activities including regular training sessions and the publication of Compliance News.


Policies on Improvement of Labor Conditions and Local Recruitment

The Oji Group stipulates in its Oji Group Behavior Standard that its business activities should be conducted by respecting the human rights of all its stakeholders, including employees.

We strive to increase the amount of compensation for employees, not to mention ensuring that the amount is higher than the minimum wage stipulated in each country. Further, we conduct regular internal audits to check whether the employment rules of our domestic and overseas affiliates conform to laws and whether the affiliates comply with the rules. In addition, we are proactive in recruiting human resources locally at each site so as to achieve sustainable growth with local communities.


Initiatives on Global Health Problems

Some of our overseas business sites are located in countries where HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria are key problems. The Oji Group is proactive in taking actions to solve these global health problems. For our employees, we provide regular health examinations, including chest X-ray tests for the early detection of tuberculosis, and conduct activities to prevent the onset of diseases. Going forward, we will also be proactive in taking initiatives such as support for local infection control activities.


Policies on Children’s Rights

We believe that we need to give special consideration to the human rights of children, as they are vulnerable to infringement. Respecting human rights of children lets them know about the existence of such rights and encourages them to fulfill active roles in society, thereby ultimately leading to create the future of society.

Based on the above understanding, we agree with the contents of the United Nations and ILO’s conventions on children’s human rights, make considerations to ensure that children’s rights are respected, and take initiatives in each region.

Policies on Rights of Indigenous Peoples

We take initiatives for respecting human rights in our global activities. As one measure, in our business activities in regions with indigenous peoples, we consider the laws of the regions and the internationally determined rights of the indigenous peoples based on our understanding of the unique culture and history of each people. We also affirm the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC).


■Examples of our activities

  1. The company-owned forest in Hiratori-cho, Hokkaido has a holy rocky hill, which is a sacred place (chinomishiri) of the Ainu, and places for passing down the view of nature and traditional cultures of the local people. To maximize the value of this area, we had dialogues with the Ainu association of Hiratori and the municipal government of Hiratori town to concluded the three-party Agreement Aimed at Protecting the Forest, Inheriting the Ainu Culture, Taking Advantage of the Culture for the Revitalizing the Area, and Thereby Ensuring Harmonious Co-Existence in the Company-Owned Forest with Cultural Landscapes in 2017.

  2. We respect the cemeteries, traditional events, and other cultural elements of the Aboriginal people in the forests of Albany Plantation Forest Company of Australia Pty Ltd. and also forests for purchasing general timber, by ensuring people’s access to such places. In addition, before we implement a plan to log trees in an area, we contact the relevant administrative body to confirm that the area is not registered as a reserve.
