Legislation and cases

In October 2020, the Japanese government established an Inter-Ministerial Committee for their National Action Plan (NAP) on Business and Human Rights. Japan’s NAP was modelled off of the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). Japan also established a NAP Working Group to facilitate discussion between the relevant government ministries and agencies and the Japanese business section, trade unions and civil society organisations. Global brands headquartered in Japan are increasingly adopting human rights policies and rolling them out throughout their operations.
