Olympus Human Rights and Labor Policy

All our activities are based on our corporate philosophy, "Making people's lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling." Following this philosophy, we support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations in 1948 and the international norms on human rights, including the United Nations Global Compact’s principles on human rights and labor. Accordingly, we are committed to respecting human rights in our business management and also expect our business partners to respect the protection of human rights.
