Reasons for being Priority Issues
In order to respond to the greater diversity in stakeholders, the Toyo Tire Group supports and respects international norms, reduces the risk of business activities negatively impacting human rights, as well as positions opportunities to support and promote the benefits of human rights as issues that should be addressed with priority.
We respect international norms related to human rights and labor, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ILO Declaration. In addition, we actively contribute to the promotion and spread of human rights to the extent that they impact the Group’s business activities in order to fulfill our responsibility to respect human rights.
In particular, for the work environment, we provide safe and healthy work conditions, thoroughly prohibit not only discrimination in HR practices but also the direct and indirect use of forced and child labor. We also support and promote the enjoyment of human rights in collaboration with business partners so that the Group does not take part in human rights violations.
We have positioned the promotion of diversity as an important human resources policy, and we are moving forward with efforts to reinforce systems to train diverse human resources and for them to fully demonstrate their capabilities.
The Toyo Tire Group Charter of Corporate Behavior was compiled as corporate action principles applied uniformly across the Group in order to faithfully conduct business activities. The charter addresses the undertaking of business in a manner that respects human rights and the culture and customs of each region as well as valuing diversity among all people in the workplace.
