Respect for human rights
The PPIH Group is working to respect the human rights of all stakeholders involved in the Group, based on the PPIH Group's collection of corporate philosophies, "The Source."
"The Source" states that the company will not discriminate against one's race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, age, place of birth, ideology, religion, educational background, physical characteristics, disability, LGBTQ+ (sexual orientation and gender identity), etc., and will recognize all forms of diversity. In addition to ensuring the awareness of this philosophy, all employees and executives working for the PPIH Group also conduct promoting the awareness and understanding towards diversity.
Furthermore, We also comply with relevant laws and regulations, and respect international codes of conduct such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenants on Human Rights, ILO Core Labor Standards, and Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We will respect workers' rights, including freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, and will not engage in any human rights abuses, such as child labor, forced labor, harassment, discrimination or violence, and will strive to identify human rights risks related to our business and avoid them.
PPIH Group Human Rights Policy
The PPIH Group will strive to deepen the understanding of human rights among all employees and executives, and to realize a society in which human rights are respected in accordance with this policy.
This policy applies to all employees and executives working for the PPIH Group. We also expect our partners who realize our common objectives to comply with this policy.
- ❷ We will contribute to the promotion of diversity in society by responding to the needs of customers with diverse values.

Promote and disseminate respect for human rights
-Implementation of The Source Examinations
In order to deepen the understanding and penetration of The Source, which defines all of the codes of conduct, including human rights, for PPIH Group employees and executives, we conduct self-learning using e-learning and The Source general examinations once a year, and The Source transmission certification examinations twice a year, including training.
A master of The Source is an employee who understands and implements the teachings of The Source, and is responsible for spreading them to other employees, including mate employees*. Employees who pass the examinations are qualified as "Masters", and we strive to practice thorough "The Source Management" with the masters as the core.
No. of successful masters: 160
General Examination participation rate: 100%
-Efforts to raise awareness
In May 2022, we invited an external lecturer to conduct ESG training for PPIH Group executives, including responses to human rights. The training covered specific examples of human rights violations, examples of human rights audits at other companies, and laws and regulations in various countries.
The establishment of a consultation service
In the unlikely event that a human rights issue arises in the workplace, we have established internal and external contact points for Group employees and their families and employees of our partners to consult and report such issues.
Internal and external (third party law firms) hotlines for reporting are provided. Privacy of those who consult or report is strictly protected, and anonymous consultation and reporting are also possible. If necessary, we will seek to confirm the facts and resolve the issue with the consent of the individual consulting. It is also stipulated that there will be no disadvantage to the person who has consulted or reported the matter, or to those who have cooperated in confirming the facts.
