Prevention of human rights abuse

We will build and continue to implement a system for "Human Rights Due Diligence"* to prevent occurrences of human rights abuse.

*Human Rights Due Diligence: process to recognize, prevent, and respond to any negative impacts on human rights.

Prohibition of child labor and forced labor
