Basic Concept

Anritsu upholds respect for human rights as one of our highest priority issues in both the Anritsu Group Charter of Corporate Behavior and Anritsu Group Code of Conduct. Given the rapid evolution of business worldwide, we believe it is important to attract a diverse workforce in terms of nationality, gender, age and views on work. This enables us to develop systems and programs that allow every individual to demonstrate their strengths based on their lifestyles, and to provide safe, secure and comfortable working conditions.

Human Rights

●Basic concept and policy

Anritsu participates in the United Nations Global Compact, which is intended to encourage conduct under the universal principles of human rights and labor. We establish policies and guidelines based on international rules on human rights that serve as in-house rules and strive to be aware of issues and promote initiatives at every stage of the value chain, from research and development to procurement, production, logistics and sales.

To further reinforce our initiatives, we will formulate a three-year plan that complies with international rules, including the International Labor Organization’s 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights endorsed by the U.N. Human Rights Council in 2011. In fiscal 2015, the plan’s first year, we will set up cross-divisional working groups and convene a global meeting to report and deliberate on human rights issues. In fiscal 2016, the Anritsu Group will formulate a unified policy on the human rights of its employees and on human rights initiatives throughout the supply chain. And we plan to construct a due diligence framework in fiscal 2017 for implementing human rights at a global scale.

●Management and System

As a global enterprise headquartered in Japan that advocates respect for basic human rights in its constitution, the Anritsu Group complies with international standards, including the ten principles of the U.N. Global Compact. We also declare respect for human rights in the Anritsu Group Charter of Corporate Behavior and the Anritsu Group Code of Conduct and are striving to establish a corporate culture that does not tolerate discrimination.

In the Charter of Corporate Behavior for guiding the Anritsu Group in the conduct of its social responsibility, we declared we will respect the human rights of all those who are connected with it, and will not permit any discriminatory practice related to race, gender and so forth or infringement of individual dignity, and will never accept child labor or forced labor.

As for the Code of Conduct, which guides the daily operations of all Anritsu Group employees, it states that we will not discriminate in word or deed or engage in acts of violence or impair personal dignity, and that we will seek to deepen our understanding and take action to respect human rights through educational programs and other appropriate means.
