The Daifuku Group has always been committed to respecting human rights in its Group Code of Conduct under its company creed, "Hini Arata," and has worked to create an environment in which each and every employee can maximize their potential. Daifuku recognizes that respect for human rights is one of the most important responsibilities for the sustainable growth of its business and organization, and will continue to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society through the understanding and implementation of this policy by its employees and business partners.

The GCNJ partners with other participating companies and organizations and conducts activities aimed at realizing a sustainable society, by focusing on various subcommittees based on 10 principles in the four fields of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. In fiscal 2021, we took part in the Supply Chain Subcommittee, Environmental Management Subcommittee, Kansai Subcommittee, Anti-Corruption Subcommittee, Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Subcommittee, SDGs Subcommittee, ESG Subcommittee, WEPs Subcommittee, Reporting Research Subcommittee, and Circular Economy Subcommittee.
