Human Rights Due Diligence*1

To meet the expectations of our stakeholders, we refer to international norms such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to tackle issues related to human rights.

In order to implement human rights due diligence within the supply chain, Toyota utilizes the Supplier Sustainability Guidelines, which specifically state that Toyota respects human rights and expects its supplier network to also have this perspective. Working together with our suppliers on risk monitoring, developing countermeasures, tracking and remediation allows Toyota to provide guidance and support to potentially affected stakeholders.

Furthermore, to be more transparent, we work together with external stakeholders including NGOs to both understand the societal expectations and assess our prioritized activities accordingly. By doing so, we hope to engage in corporate activities that are fair and impartial.
