Human Rights Policy
Broadleaf Group (“the Group”) established Human Rights Policy ("the Policy") based on its corporate philosophy of "Gratitude and Happiness" to fulfill its responsibility to respect human rights as a company.
Scope of Application
The Policy is applied to all officers and employees of Broadleaf and its group companies. The Group expects all business partners, including suppliers, to understand and support the Policy so that it can fulfill commitment to human rights in the corporate activities.
The Group respects human rights described in the internationally recognized “International Bill of Human Rights” and the International Labour Organization’s “ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.” In addition, the Group will conduct business activities in accordance with the United Nations’ “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.” The Group signed the UN Global Compact and supports Ten Principles of the UNGC.
Responsibility to Respect Human Rights
The Group understands that its corporate activities may have a direct or indirect negative impact on human rights. The Group will fulfill its responsibility to respect human rights by striving to avoid violating human rights for those affected by its corporate activities, and by taking corrective action when it becomes clear that it caused or contributed to negative impacts on human rights. If the Group came into conflict with international human rights norms in any case, it will pursue methods that maximize respect for internationally recognized human rights.
Human Rights Due Diligence and Remedies
The Group will establish a human rights due diligence mechanism to identify negative human rights impacts on society through its corporate activities, and work to prevent and mitigate such impacts. When it becomes clear that a negative impact on human rights has been caused, the Group will work to remedy it through dialogue and appropriate procedures in accordance with international standards.
Disclosure of Information
The Group will continuously disclose the status of its compliance with the Policy through its website and other means.
Education and Training
The Group will continuously promote appropriate education and awareness to all officers and employees of Broadleaf and its group companies to ensure that the Policy and human rights due diligence are well understood and effectively implemented in all corporate activities.
The Group will clearly identify a person responsible for the implementation of the Policy and supervise its implementation.
We will create a society in which anyone can realize a fulfilling lifestyle. To this end, we will help build sustainable and inclusive social and economic systems through corporate activities that place importance on “gratitude and happiness.”
