About Human Rights Basic Policy
Message from the President
It goes without saying that "people" are the most important element in every aspect of the JBS Group's business activities. Respect for fundamental human rights in our business activities has already been thoroughly implemented as the basis of our business activities. However, interest in human rights is growing across the world, and the private companies are currently expected to tackle human rights issues. In light of these circumstances, the JBS Group has recently established the “Human Rights Basic Policy” to be observed, in order to express respect for human rights in our business activities in a tangible manner. Companies are increasingly expected to address issues related to sustainability, including respect for fundamental human rights. The JBS Group recognizes protection of human rights as a key element in our achievement of sustainability management and SDGs and will promote business activities in accordance with this Basic Policy.
