Since September 2012, the Nippon CSR Consortium, whose secretariat is Caux Round Table Japan (CRT Japan), 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 2017 Human Rights Due Diligence Workshop was held for the sixth year in the period from the 15th of June to the 13th of July, and identified sector specific human rights issues with the use of Human Rights Guidance Tool developed by UNEP Finance Initiative. Also, we held the Stakeholder Engagement Programs in Thailand, Malaysia and Myanmar and published the report. Further information is here.
The Nippon CSR Consortium issued “Human Rights Issues by Sector (draft)” as the outcome of the discussions in the workshop, and invites for public comments on the “Human Rights Issues by Sector (draft)”
