Casio has been taking stock of human rights issues since 2012, using ISO 26000 as a guide. In order to strengthen its due diligence, Casio sought the advice of experts and created its own tool for checking the status of human rights, taking the Danish Institute for Human Rights’ Human Rights Compliance Assessment Quick Check as a reference. Casio uses the tool to make effective assessments and conduct education relating to human rights. Using the tool, Casio took stock of the status of initiatives addressing human rights issues at Casio Computer Co., Ltd. and at group companies in and outside Japan in fiscal 2015. The secretariat performed issue analysis based on the gathered data, and the results were provided as feedback to the group companies. Since fiscal 2017, Casio has been checking for human rights issues, alternating year by year between checking all group production companies, and checking Casio Computer Co., Ltd. and all group sales companies. Since fiscal 2017, Casio has been checking for human rights issues, alternating year by year between checking group production companies and group sales companies. In fiscal 2019, a human rights checkup was conducted at eight group production companies and feedback was provided by the secretariat. In fiscal 2021, a human rights checkup was conducted at 27 group sales companies in and outside Japan and feedback was provided by the secretariat.
In fiscal 2022, Casio reviewed the results of the human rights checkups it had conducted since 2016, as well as its human rights checkup tool. Starting in fiscal 2023, Casio will confirm the status of human rights initiatives. Going forward, each site will make improvements based on the feedback by applying the PDCA cycle, in order to enhance human rights due diligence throughout the group.
