The Nisshin OilliO Group Human Rights Policy

Basic Policy

We believe that the mission of The Nisshin OilliO Group is to realize the well-being of people and to continue contributing to the development of society and the economy through the creation of new value based on our long-nurtured technology related to food, such as vegetable oils and fats, and its provision to society in accordance with the concept of pursuing “Good Flavor, Health, and Beauty.”
We recognize that our business may, directly or indirectly, exert an impact on human rights. Therefore, to ensure respect for the human rights of all people involved in our business, we have established The Nisshin OilliO Group Human Rights Policy, and we promote initiatives to respect human rights in the entire supply chain in line with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The Nisshin OilliO Group respects the human rights stipulated in the International Bill of Human Rights, the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
Furthermore, if an inconsistency were to arise between internationally recognized human rights and national or regional laws, our approach would be one of respecting international principles of human rights to the utmost.

All directors, officers, and employees of The Nisshin OilliO Group will abide by this policy.
In addition, we will make efforts so that business partners of The Nisshin OilliO Group, including suppliers, also understand this policy.

Human Rights Due Diligence

In accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, we will make continuous efforts to identify any negative impact of our business on human rights and to prevent and alleviate such impact.

Contact for Consultations

We have established The Nisshin OilliO Group Corporate Ethics Hotline as a contact in our internal report system enabling consultations and whistleblowing relating to human rights.
In addition, we are going ahead with the establishment of a contact enabling reporting from outside stakeholders as well of acts that violate, or threaten to violate, this policy.

Relief Measures

If any act causing or encouraging a negative impact on human rights becomes evident, we will adopt appropriate and effective relief measures.


We will implement education and training so that all directors, officers, and employees understand and abide by this policy.

Dialogue with Stakeholders

In the process of implementing this policy, we will engage in sincere dialogue and discussions with stakeholders.

Information Disclosure

Through our corporate website, we will regularly disclose the status of initiatives based on this policy, including the state of implementation of human rights due diligence.

This policy was approved by the Board of Directors in March 2022 after deliberations in the Sustainability Committee, which is chaired by the representative director and president.
