The Meiji Group established the Meiji Group Policy on Human Rights in April 2016.We believe it is important to show a clear corporate stance on human rights to grow our businesses globally. Therefore, based on this policy, we will respect the basic human rights of all stakeholders and make intensive efforts to mobilize suppliers and other parties involved in supply chains.
We established the Meiji Group Procurement Policy in April 2016. We understand the need to consider such social responsibilities as human rights and the environment in relation to procurement. Based on this policy, we will build cooperative, trusting relationships with business partners and achieve socially responsible procurement.
As the second year of the 2017 Group CSR Medium-Term Management Plan, this is an important year for the Meiji Group with regard to taking measures and producing concrete results. Further, in accordance with a theme of the plan, we will enhance communication with stakeholders to achieve sustainable and sound development of the Group and society.
In particular, we will focus on promoting employees’ understanding of the policies on human rights and procurement established in April. We should address several tasks steadily and raise the level of our CSR activities.
