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.
The firth Stakeholder Engagement Programme in 2016 focused on identifying silent human rights issues by sector based on Human Rights Guidance Tool developed by UNEP FI, and identifying priorities on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by sector in consideration with the Sustainable Development Goals and proposals for the SDGs submitted by NGOs/NPOs in the G7 Ise-Shima Summit. The programme was held six times in the period from 15th June to 27 July. More details are here.
The result of the discussions of is summarized in the “Human Rights Issues (draft)” document and the draft “Priorities on the SDGs by Sector(draft)” document, and are hereby disclosed for public consultation.
