Human Rights Initiatives
As a member of society, the Mitsubishi Estate Group is keenly aware of the importance of respect for human rights. To fulfill our responsibility to respect the basic human rights of all stakeholders, not only those involved in Group businesses, we set up the Mitsubishi Estate Group Human Rights Policy on April 1, 2018. Respect for human rights is part of the Mitsubishi Estate Group Guidelines for Conduct, which all employees are expected to follow on a daily basis. These Guidelines stress the importance of respect for human rights and diversity, which means that employees show concern for human rights and the environment in the course of their business activities. The Human Rights Policy is intended to ensure that we, as a good corporation, understand that internationally mandated human rights are a bare minimum that we must go beyond, that we reaffirm the importance of supporting, protecting and respecting human rights and that we work to respect the fundamental human rights of every single person involved in the Group's businesses.
