The MHI Group is firmly committed to respecting the human rights and workers' rights of employees as per international treaties of human rights.
In May 2015 we established the MHI Group Global Code of Conduct as the common standard for our group. Through this we believe we will cultivate a single and shared corporate culture, one that is rooted in mutual trust and affords dignity and respect to all employees. The MHI Group values the individual contribution of people irrespective of race, colour, religion, political convictions, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability. Discrimination will not be tolerated by the MHI Group.
Each year at the workplace, we conduct training to promote human rights awareness. It covers the fundamentals of human rights and harassment. This training targets new recruits and newly appointed managers, such as deputy managers and section managers. In the fiscal 2016, we rolled this training out across 270 new recruits and 1,230 newly appointed managers and supervisors. Furthermore, in an effort to heighten awareness of and prevent "power harassment" (workplace bullying and harassment) we introduced an e-learning course in fiscal 2010 that continues to be taken to this day.
We formulated "MHI Basic Policy on Human Rights" to protect the human rights of every stakeholders involving with our business activities, and for the further progress of sustainable society.
The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries group endeavors to fulfill its responsibilities for the protection of human rights in order to continue truly contributing to social progress in accordance with the MHI creed. We act in line with the "Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights" adopted by the U.N. Human Rights Council and endeavor never to act in ways that elicit or facilitate human rights violations by others or other negative actions or effects.
