Respect for Human Rights
At MGC, we adhere to strict MGC Corporate Behavior Guidelines and the MGC Group Code of Conduct, which call for us to respect individual personality and human rights, not discriminating based on their race, gender, nationality, age, religion, or place of origin, and not harming the dignity of others.Our Code of Conduct also articulates that sexual harassment and power harassment are prohibited.These guidelines and codes—along with the four fundamental principles*1 of the International Labor Organization (ILO)—have also been communicated to our Group companies overseas.We work to reinforce these principles on a day-to-day basis through training sessions, internal communications and Human Rights Week, and have also established a special consultation desk.
Furthermore, we are engaged in the improvement of knowledge and collection of information through membership in the Mitsubishi Human Rights Enlightenment Council and participating in a variety of training and information exchange meetings on human rights.
In April 2020, MGC signed the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), and was registered as a participating company. With the signing of the UNGC, we will promote the implementation of responsible business practices by ensuring our strategy and execution conform with the ten UNGC principles*2 on "protection of human rights," "elimination of unjust labor," "support for the environment" and "anti-corruption."
