Why is “Forced or Compulsory Labor” a critical issue to be addressed?
Explanation of the reason and background
In addition, taking into account the risk of illegal labor being forced upon people who work at plants, business locations, and suppliers as we expand production and sales overseas, we have selected forced or compulsory labor as a critical issue to be addressed.
Vision (attainment goal) / target
Measures for vision achievement
In October 2018, WBCSD TIP launched a platform to ensure the sustainability of natural rubber, and Yokohama Rubber formulated its Procurement Policy for the Sustainable Natural Rubber based on these global activities, and released a policy prohibiting child labor.
Identification of the presence or otherwise of forced or compulsory labor at the Yokohama Rubber Group and in the supply chain
A questionnaire survey on compliance (human rights, child labor, and the environment) with all natural rubber suppliers we have transactions with has been completed. We are observing compliance and legal systems while conducting CSR initiatives (plantation support).
