Human Rights Policy

The MOL Group issued its Human Rights Policy statement based on the MOL Group Corporate Principles, Group Vision, and Group Values (MOL CHARTS).

Human Rights Due Diligence

Whole image of initiatives

The MOL Group will establish a human rights due diligence framework based on the following processes as it strives to address human rights issues.
Currently, we conduct human rights due diligence under the direction of a Representative Director/Executive Vice President who concurrently serves as the Chief Environmental Sustainability Officer (CESO). In fiscal year (FY) 2022, we will proceed with a document-based survey and on-site interviews to grasp the current situation regarding human rights issues in supply chains and further enhance our initiatives toward improvement.

Overall view of initiatives

MOL holds position-specific human rights and harassment training programs every year. These programs are designed to provide a deeper understanding of not only legal compliance related to human rights and harassment of course, but also relevant systems and actual events including background issues, such as how people are affected by human rights abuses and harassment, with the aim of creating a foundation for responsible actions by all MOL Group employees. In addition, these programs are intended to help employees act as good citizens, not only in corporate activities, but also in their everyday lives.

Training on prevention of harassment All MOL Group employees
Workshop on harassment prevention at pre-assignment briefing session Loaned MOL employees (non-consolidated) in Japan and overseas

Human Rights

Support for International Initiatives

Participating in the UN Global Compact

The Global Compact emblem

With business activities spread across the globe, the MOL Group believes that building good relationships with various stakeholders worldwide and contributing to the realization of sustainable growth of society are vital as it seeks to realize the ideas set forth in the MOL Group Corporate Principles. In order to contribute to an international framework for realizing these goals, MOL became the first Japanese shipping company to participate in the United Nations Global Compact in 2005. Since then, MOL has worked to support and practice the 10 principles in 4 areas of the UN Global Compact, which shares the same values as MOL’s Rules of Conduct, which were established as a set of guidelines for executives and employees.

10 Principles of the Global Compact

Human Rights
Principle 1 : Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2 : make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Labour
Principle 3 : Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4 : the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5 : the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6 : the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Environment
Principle 7 : Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges
Principle 8 : undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9 : encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Anti-Corruption
Principle 10 : Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

Fundamental Rights of Workers

MOL participates in the United Nations Global Compact, supporting universal principles regarding human rights and labor and putting them into practice. In addition, the treaty concerning the Maritime Labor Convention in 2006 (MLC2006), which stipulates the basic rights of crewmembers, sets forth the following four acts regarding human rights:

  • Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
  • The elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor;
  • The effective abolition of child labor; and
  • The elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

Our vessels adhere to onboard compliance guidelines, respect the four human rights as mentioned above, prohibit discrimination by religion, nationality, age, and gender, and establish procedures to address complaints of harassment. They also hold monthly onboard compliance committee meetings to implement and evaluate efforts on human rights issues, discrimination, and harassment through dialogues between crewmembers and onboard compliance officers.


Modern Slavery Statement

MOL has published its latest "Modern Slavery Statement" pursuant to Section 54 (1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.


MOL Group Declaration of Harassment Prevention

The MOL Group strives to provide an innovative workplace where all employees can maximize their own enthusiasm, skills, physical and emotional well-being, and vitality. Therefore, a work environment where everyone can enjoy mutual respect and value one another is indispensable. Harassment harms the dignity of anyone in the company and damages the entire workplace, and absolutely must not occur here.

The Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Group will take the following measures to promote the creation of healthy and dynamic workplaces free from harassment.

  • We will foster an organizational culture in which each and every employee on land and at sea, will respect each other regardless of position and will be able to freely and energetically demonstrate diverse individuality, values, and viewpoints.
  • Employees and the Company will work together to build an organizational culture that enhances knowledge and awareness of harassment prevention and deters or stops any form of harassment.
  • We shall establish a system in which anyone can feel safe about reporting harassment issues, and in the event of harassment, we shall take fair and appropriate measures in a resolute manner and establish an organizational structure to prevent recurrence.

Established in December 2020
