Announcement of our new website for Business and Human Rights Practice
We are very excited to announce the launch of our new website below for Business and Human Rights Practice “Your Partner for ESG”.
With Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) matters becoming increasingly regulated around the world, all business entities need to stay up to date on these issues and ensure compliance with the latest national and international legislation.
If you carry on business in Japan or have contractual relationships with Japanese companies directly, or indirectly through international supply chains, you need to be aware of and ensure conpliance with Japanese law in relation to human rights, including labor law. Additionally, it is important to be aware of expectations contained in government guidelines, such as the “Guidelines on Respecting Human Rights in Responsible Supply Chains” published in 2022 by the Japanese government (“METI” – Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry-).
With our extensive knowledge and experience regarding Japanese business law, our Business and Human Rights practice can help your company succeed in its operations in and with Japan.
For any inquiries or further details of the support of our Business and Human Rights practice including human rights due diligence based on Japanese laws and guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact us with our contact form here.
We look forward to working with you.
Ken Takahashi, Partner at Kensei Law Offices
