Policies and Philosophy on Respecting the Rights of Workers

Nissan has been a member since 2004 of the United Nations Global Compact advocating universal principles on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and promotes the management of sustainability strategies pursuant to the compact’s ten principles. We have expanded and enhanced our wide-ranging activities to ensure that employees’ basic rights are respected.

Management That Respects the Rights of Workers

Under the “Value Diversity and Provide Equal Opportunity” code within the Global Code of Conduct, Nissan requires its employees to respect and value the diversity found among the company’s employees, business partners, customers and communities, while rejecting discrimination and harassment in all forms, regardless of magnitude. Nissan executives and employees must respect the human rights of others and may not discriminate against or harass others based on race, nationality, gender, religion, disability, age, place of origin, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other reason; nor may they allow such a situation to go unchecked if discovered. We also work to ensure that all employees, both male and female, can work in an environment free from sexual and other forms of harassment.

Achievements in Respecting the Rights of Workers
