현대판 노예 제도와 인신 매매

INTRODUCTION FROM MASAYUKI HIGUCHI,

PRESIDENT & CEO OF FUJIFILM SONOSITE, INC.

 

FUJFILM SonoSite, Inc. (“SonoSite”) is a manufacturer of bedside and point-of-care ultrasound equipment in the Medical Device and Imaging Technologies sector.

We are a part of the group of companies owned by FUJIFILM Corporation (“FUJIFILM Group”). Our ultimate parent company is FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation. Both FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation and FUJIFILM Corporation have their head offices in Japan.

The FUJIFILM Group is dedicated to developing mutually beneficial partnership relationships with suppliers. Through our procurement policies and procedures the FUJIFILM Group fosters social and environmental responsibility, while encouraging fair trade and free enterprise in international markets.

FUJIFLIM 그룹은 노예와 인신매매 행위 근절을 위한 당사의 활동을 도모하는 데 많은 노력을 기울이고 있습니다. FUJIFLIM 그룹 계열사는 FUJIFLIM Group의 기업 행동 헌장과 기업 활동으로 인한 노예와 인신매매 예방 등 다양한 윤리적 기업 원칙을 포함한 FUJIFLIM 그룹의 행동 강령을 준수하여 활동해야 합니다. FUJIFILM 그룹은 이러한 원칙을 준수하기 위한 노력의 일환으로 2015년 6월, 공급업체를 위한 FUJIFILM Corporation은 FUJIFILM 기업의 사회적 책임 조달 가이드라인("공급업체 가이드라인")을 채택하여 FUJIFILM Corporation의 공급업체가 인권에 영향을 미칠 수 있는 다양한 영역에서 윤리적 경영 철학을 준수하도록 요구하고 있습니다. 강제 노역, 아동 노동 착취, 비인간적 대우 등이 해당 영역에 포함됩니다. 공급업체 가이드라인은 점차 진척을 보이고 있으나 여전히 아시아 외의 FUJIFILM 그룹 기업으로 전파되는 과정에 있습니다. 그러나 FUJIFILM 그룹은 지역 CRS 조달 활동과 인권 존중 활동과 관련해 더욱 큰 진척을 이뤘으며, 관련 내용은 다음 기사에서 확인하실 수 있습니다. http://www.fujifilmholdings.com/en/sustainability/svp2017/process/policy03/valuechain/01.html http://www.fujifilmholdings.com/en/sustainability/svp2017/process/policy03/cprm/04.html

노예 제도와 인신 매매에 대한 정책

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We comply with the FUJIFILM Group Charter for Corporate Behaviour and FUJIFILM Group Code of Conduct which reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and promoting this approach in our supply chains.

노예 제도와 인신 매매 방지를 위한 프로세스

All FUJIFILM Group staff around the world are required to abide by the FUJIFILM Group Charter for Corporate Behaviour and FUJIFILM Group Code of Conduct in order to ensure that all FUJIFILM Group companies exhibit and promote ethical business activities. FUJIFILM Group companies are required to complete an annual checklist which requires them to answer questions on their measures to prevent forced and child labor in connection with their compliance with the FUJIFILM Group Charter for Corporate Behaviour and FUJIFILM Group Code of Conduct.

FUJIFILM Corporation이 제공하고 당사가 판매하는 제품의 경우 FUJIFILM Corporation 조달팀이 공급망에서 잠재적 위험 영역을 식별하고 평가해야 하며 해당 영역의 공급업체가 공급업체 지침을 준수하도록 하기 위해 해당 공급업체와 협력해야 합니다.

당사 조달팀은 당사가 직접 제공하는 제품과 서비스에 대한 위험을 식별하고 관리하기 위한 자체 활동의 일환으로, 공급업체로 하여금 제공된 제품 및/또는 서비스나 그 제조와 관련하여 해당 업체의 시설에 대한 규제 점검을 허용하고 협조하도록 의무를 부과함으로써 당사 공급망에서의 노예 제도 및 인신 매매 발생 위험을 완화하기 위해 노력합니다. 또한 당사 공급업체는 당사에 판매되는 모든 상품과 서비스가 평등 고용 기회 및 소수 집단 우대 정책을 포함하는 모든 관련 법규 및 규정을 엄격하게 준수하여 제조, 판매, 전달 및 제공됨을 보증합니다. 

공급업체의 당사 가치 및 윤리 준수

당사는 공급업체의 노예 제도 및 인신 매매 행위 금지를 위한 행동을 촉진합니다.

궁극적으로 FUJIFILM Corporation이 제공하고 당사가 판매하는 제품의 경우 해당 제품의 공급업체는 공급업체 지침에 명시된 윤리적 비즈니스 원칙을 준수해야 합니다. 또한 FUJIFILM Corporation은 공급업체 및 비즈니스 파트너와의 협업 계약서에 해당 규정 내용을 반영합니다. FUJIFILM Corporation은 해당 공급업체 및 비즈니스 파트너의 이해 증진을 위해 관련 내용에 대한 설명회를 개최합니다. 기업의 사회적 책임과 관련된 노력을 모니터링하기 위해 Fujifilm 공급업체 CSR 점검 목록이 배포되었으며 같은 해 FUJIFILM Corporation은 당해 회계년도 종료 시점까지 Fujifilm Corporation의 각 사업부와 중국 내 FUJIFILM 그룹 계열사를 대상으로 한 전체 조달 규모의 80% 이상을 담당하는 공급업체 및 비즈니스 파트너가 해당 점검 목록을 사용하도록 하는 작업에 착수했습니다.

FUJIFILM Corporation이 제공하고 당사가 판매하는 제품의 경우 FUJIFILM Corporation 조달팀이 공급망에서 잠재적 위험 영역을 식별하고 평가해야 하며 해당 영역의 공급업체가 공급업체 지침을 준수하도록 하기 위해 해당 공급업체와 협력해야 합니다.

As part of our own initiatives to identify and manage risk for products that we source ourselves and for services, our procurement staff work to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains by obligating suppliers to permit and cooperate with any regulatory inspections of their facilities relating to the supplied products and/or services, or their production. Additionally, our suppliers warrant that all goods and services sold to us have been produced, sold, delivered and furnished in strict compliance with all applicable laws and regulations including equal employment opportunity and Affirmative Action.

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES AND ETHICS

당사는 공급업체의 노예 제도 및 인신 매매 행위 금지를 위한 행동을 촉진합니다.

For the products that we sell that are ultimately sourced from FUJIFILM Corporation (if any), suppliers of those products are requested to commit to the ethical business principles set out in the Supplier Guidelines. Further, FUJIFILM Corporation aims to reflect those standards in cooperation agreements with suppliers and business partners. The Fujifilm Supplier CSR Checklist was being used by the suppliers and business partners responsible for over 70% of the total procurement amount for each business division in Fujifilm Corporation and the FUJIFILM group companies within China by the end of March 2017. During the current financial year FUJIFILM Corporation is following up with suppliers and business partners who have already completed the Checklist to confirm their responses against their actual activities. After this work is completed, FUJIFILM Corporation will expand the use of the Checklist to other suppliers and business partners.

For products that we source ourselves and for services, our suppliers warrant that all goods and services sold to us have been produced, sold, delivered and furnished in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

SonoSite is committed to ethical behavior. We adhere to our internal Standards of Business Conduct and Compliance with Law Program which outlines the legal and ethical standards each employee has a personal obligation to uphold with each other, customers, vendors and the general public. Employees must operate as good corporate citizens, and comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations applicable to their respective businesses, including: requiring those with whom we do business to conduct themselves in accordance with applicable laws and regulations; remaining alert and sensitive to situations that could result in any fraudulent, illegal, unethical, improper actions by any employee, agent or representative; and upholding the principles and practices of equal employment opportunity, non-discrimination and workforce diversity.

As part of the FUJIFILM Group, we also share in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment to contribute to the sustainable development of society by putting into practice the FUJIFILM Group's Corporate Philosophy, and realizing its vision through sincere and fair business activities. The CSR Promotion system consists of a committee at the highest level to ensure that the systems are implemented and adhered to. The following systems under the CSR program are used for compliance with supply chain transparency laws and regulations:

교육

당사는 당사 공급망과 비즈니스에서의 현대 노예 제도 및 인신 매매 위험에 대한 이해를 확고히 하기 위해 당사 조달팀과의 협력하에 담당자가 공급업체와의 상호 작용에 있어 도덕적이고 진실되게 행동하고 공급망 전체에서 이러한 접근 방식을 구현하고 촉진하는지 확인합니다.

FURTHER STEPS

At a FUJIFILM Group level, FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation is now finalizing a Human Rights Policy to strengthen its commitment to important human rights matters such as the elimination of slavery and human trafficking and expects to publish this during the current financial year. In addition it is anticipated that suppliers and business partners to FUJIFILM companies in North America will start utilizing the Supplier Guidelines during the current financial year with those to FUJIFILM’s European companies to follow later in 2018

Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains we intend to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking: adopt and support all corporate policies related to business ethics and respect for basic human rights, and periodically review our policies and procedures to help maintain compliance with internal policy and external laws.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement for FUJFILM SonoSite, Inc. for the financial year ending 31 March 2017.
