VISION / VALUE
The mission of the Group is to become a “change agent group” that brings positive change to individuals and organizations. As we continue to grow ourselves and seek to fulfill this mission, the Group aims to achieve a sustainable society.
Society demands that companies take efforts for a sustainable society as social and environmental issues have worsened. As such, the Group has begun initiatives to address ESG issues and solve problems. In order to realize a sustainable society, we need not only to take efforts ourselves, but also have suppliers’ understanding and support in such efforts as our partners.
As such, we have established WILL GROUP Supplier Action Standards for our suppliers.
We ask that suppliers understand and agree to these standards and cooperate with us in efforts to realize a sustainable society as a partner of the Group.
Suppliers shall comply with all national and local laws and regulations where they perform business activities. Suppliers shall strive to comply with the international standards and industrial standards related to fair business practices, human rights, labor, and the environment.
*Child labor refers to the employment of persons who have not reached the minimum employment age as established in conventions and recommendations of the ILO (International Labour Organization), as well as the neglect of protection of youth workers.
For example, in Japan, child labor is prohibited in the cases of employing persons less than 15 years of age or violating laws and regulations to protect youth workers. One example of laws and regulations that protect youth workers from employment that may damage their health, safety, or morals is the restriction on nighttime work or dangerous jobs. Overseas, employment of persons who have not reached the minimum employment age as established by national laws and regulations and protection duty violations are considered child labor.
For countries that do not have such laws and regulations, actions that violate the conventions and recommendations of the ILO (International Labour Organization) shall be considered child labor. (In principle, the minimum employment age is 15: ILO Convention No. 138)
*Discrimination refers to allowing different opportunities or treatment in employment, promotion, remuneration, and training based on factors outside of those logical, such as individual skills, aptitude, and results.
For example, people may be discriminated against for race, ethnicity, nationality, place of origin, skin color, age, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, religion, political views, union membership, and marital status. Also, unequal opportunities and treatment because of health exams and pregnancy exams can be viewed as a discriminatory act.
