Policy

The Tokyu Fudosan Holdings Group will respect the following matters as a set of fundamental rights in hiring and employment in order to achieve co-existence and co-prosperity with employees.

  1. Prohibition of discrimination: We will eliminate all discriminatory actions based on nationality, race, religion, beliefs, gender, age, sexual orientation and/or disability and will strive to maintain equal opportunity and treatment in hiring and employment.
  2. Prohibition of harassment: We will never engage in sexual harassment, power harassment, or any other form of harassment toward people in the workplace. We will also never tolerate language or actions related to harassment.
  3. Prevention of forced labor: We will strive to eliminate and prevent all forms of forced labor.
  4. Curtailment of overwork and reduction of overtime: We will establish a fundamental policy on work management to curtail overwork and reduce overtime work giving consideration to employees’ work-life balance and their health maintenance/improvement. In Japan, we will comply with the “Article 36 Agreement.”
  5. Prevention of child labor: We will support and practice the effective abolishment of child labor.
  6. Respect for freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining: In recognizing that the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are fundamental human rights that must be respected by a company, in countries and regions where the formation of labor unions is allowed we fully recognize employees’ right to organize, right to collective bargaining and right to strike in labor agreements. In addition, even in countries and regions that do not allow the formation of labor unions due to laws or practice, we will effectively promote conflict resolution through dialogue involving management and labor with the purpose of securing the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
  7. Payment of wages above and beyond the minimum wage: We will comply with labor laws and regulations and adopt a fundamental policy on labor management in which we will pay wages to employees above and beyond the minimum wage.

In its employment regulations, Tokyu Land Corporation prohibits employees under the age of 18 from working more than eight hours in one day, and as of today, there have been no cases of child labor or forced labor. To prevent child labor or forced labor from occurring in the future, checks are conducted as part of daily operations.

Launched and Participated in Builders and Realtors Human Rights Due Diligence Workshop

Practice and Implementation

Launched and Participated in Builders and Realtors Human Rights Due Diligence Workshop

On September 21, 2018, with Mitsubishi Estate as an organizer, Tokyu Fudosan Holdings, NTT Urban Development, Tokyo Tatemono Co., Nomura Real Estate Holdings, Obayashi Co., Shimizu Corporation and Taisei Corporation joined in launching of Builders and Realtors Human Rights Due Diligence Workshop.

The Workshop aims to identify adverse impacts that builders and realtors have on human rights, and research and explore how we can address them. By doing so, we make sure we are in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights which require business enterprises to avoid infringing on human rights of others and to implement measures to prevent, mitigate and remedy human rights abuses on those linked to their businesses.

Amid recent globalization, our businesses today operate well beyond national boundaries and we are expected to embrace more internationalized, sophisticated corporate social responsibilities(CSR). At the same time, adaption of UN Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) in 2015 has accelerated ESG investing practices where investors screen and invest in companies with strong E(environment), S(society) and G(governance) due diligence.

Regarding Human Rights, a core subject in Social Responsibility, UN Commission on Human Rights adopted UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in 2011, providing a framework for businesses to respect human rights, in which companies are required to practice human rights due diligence in order to avoid and mitigate human rights infringement.

Human rights due diligence practice involves four steps: assessing human rights impacts; integrating findings and responding to impacts; tracking performance; and communicating about how impacts are addressed. Because these steps are to be taken not only on our own business entity but also on its entire supply chain and value chain network, the vastness of this scope has hindered us from thoroughly addressing the issues. That is why developers as well as construction companies in the supply chains decided to launch the Workshop, the first of its kind in the industry, to establish Human rights due diligence framework.

The Workshop provides member companies with opportunities to learn about human rights including international human rights standards and approaches expected of us. We intend to invite specialists from NGO and other experts to help us identify actual human rights risks and explore specific approaches.
