Human rights are one of the core CSR topics that have sparked discussions and activities in countries such as Japan over recent years. Since September 2012, the Nippon CSR Consortium has been working to provide a forum in which to identify and discuss negative human rights impacts that may arise as a result of corporate activities. This work has been conducted in collaboration with companies from various industrial sectors, as well as NPOs, NGOs and human rights experts in academia.
This year of 2016, we decided to arrange this consortium in Thailand with collaboration of Marimo5. The results of discussions are summarized in the draft “Stakeholder Engagement Programme (draft) in Thailand” document and are hereby disclosed for public consultation.
