Ensuring thorough respect for human rights, including in supply chains
Protecting the Human Rights of Business Partners
EPC business involves projects with partner companies of all kinds, such as vendors and subcontractors. As a prime contractor, we recognize that a key duty of ours is to protect and manage the human rights of those working for our subcontractors on our behalf. We are committed to protecting human rights, including those of our business partners, by protecting the rights of those working across our supply chains and respecting their welfare.
System for Managing Human Rights Protection
Potential subcontractors receive and are asked to understand the JGC Vendor and Contractor Expectations, which includes rules on respecting human rights. Rights protection is also stipulated in contracts concluded with partner companies, who are requested to understand and respect internationally recognized human rights. We will also consider conducting human rights due diligence for partner companies in the future.
