Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (Supply Chain Act): A Milestone for Human Rights and Corporate Responsibility
At the beginning of the year, Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH (DSE) has published the principles and procedures of the Supply Chain Act in a policy statement on the DSE website. The Supply Chain Act represents a significant step towards responsible corporate management and the protection of human rights along global supply chains. Both our Managing Director, Masahiro Kato, and our Human Rights Officer, Martin Hesse, have issued clear and distinct statements regarding this groundbreaking law.
Masahiro Kato, Managing Director of DSE: "The Supply Chain Act is a challenge that we, as a company, willingly embrace. We acknowledge the urgency and necessity to protect and improve working conditions and human rights throughout our entire supply chain. It is not only a legal obligation but also a moral responsibility that we bear as a company. Through transparent reporting and active measures, we will ensure that our suppliers adhere to ethical standards. This law not only promotes responsibility but also fosters trust between companies and consumers."
Martin Hesse, Human Rights Officer of DSE: "The Supply Chain Act is a milestone in the fight for the protection of human rights in global supply chains. As the Human Rights Officer, I explicitly welcome this initiative. The law establishes clear guidelines and standards to ensure that companies meet their responsibilities to the people working in their supply chain. My task as the Human Rights Officer is to ensure that the implementation of the law not only exists on paper but also brings about positive changes in reality. We will collaborate closely with companies to ensure that dignified working conditions, environmental protection, and social responsibility are firmly embedded in corporate practices."
Overall, these statements represent a positive attitude towards the Supply Chain Act and demonstrate Daiichi Sankyo's commitment to a more sustainable and ethical corporate practice along global supply chains.
