In recent years, as public expectations for ESG, SDGs, and sustainability grows, demands for social responsibility (labor rights and ethics) have increased on supply chain. Along with these, the need for compliance evaluation and management system construction has been growing accordingly. Based on practical experience, we analyze the current situation of your company's activities, incorporate them into tasks, and provide support in assessing the situation and establishing a management system for social topics.
Social/Labour and Human Rights (LHR) Audit/Consulting Services
As part of a company's social responsibility to its supply chain, it is becoming increasingly common for clients to be asked to review and self-assess their own management of codes of conduct, ethics, human rights, labor laws, and other related issues. In addition, human rights due diligence is widely required to evaluate non-financial information disclosure.
We have cooperated with influential overseas NGOs in the social sectors, and have conducted audits, consulting and other services for about 10 years.
With these experiences, we provide operational support services tailored to your company's operation and requests.
Key Examples of Social/LHR Audit/Consulting Services
Social audit based on industry and supplier standards
Standards have been developed in the supply chain to ensure that safe working environment, workers treated with respect and dignity, the company committed to environmental responsibility, and operations conducted ethically. We perform risk assessment based on these standards at your company and your business partners, and report with appropriate measures.
Support and training for audit response
We provide support for audits, which are becoming stricter and more costly year by year. We share key points such as "what perspectives should be audited" and facilitate reduction of man-hours required for internal response ensuring smooth audit response.
Trend surveys related to overseas social fields
Standards in the social field have been formulated in Europe and other regions and industries. We will support your company's appropriate social initiatives by researching these standards and the initiatives of your competitors.
Based on your company's situation, we efficiently and effectively support the formulation of tools and the construction of management and operation methods for the tools.We assist in selecting a management system after fully understanding your current situation and clarifying your needs through interviews.
Step 1：Confirmation of current situation
We conduct interviews regarding the tools and management systems concerning social aspects currently in use, operational procedures (response when changes occur, methods of confirming applicable laws and regulations, personnel transfers and changes in personnel, internal training on legal compliance, etc.) and other related issues.
We also review the management data and manuals.
Step 2：Extraction of issues to be improved / Identification of main elements of tools and management systems
Based on the results of Step 1, we identify and prioritize issues that need to be improved, identify the main elements of the tools and management systems and methods that your company needs, and propose how to utilize the tools and management systems.
Specifically, we identify the target facilities, points of change, and the scope of applicable laws and regulations in the tool to be constructed, and determine the tool framework.
Step 3：Formulation of tools
Based on the framework developed in Step 2, we develop the tool. After the draft is developed, we then make any necessary adjustments to finalize the tool upon your review.
Step 4：Tool maintenance/management proposal
To facilitate continuous use of the tools within your organization, we also update the laws and regulations and propose management and operation rules that define rules for self-inspection by each factory (maintenance of operation manuals, etc.).
