Japan Decent Work 8 Index (JD8)

QUICK and Research Institute For Advancement Of Living Standards (RENGO-RIALS) established the “Research and Study Committee on ESG-S Indicators (ESG-S Indicators Committee)” to create indicators that appropriately reflect the structural issues unique to Japan. JD8 consists of eight indicators: (1) Adequate working hours and wages, (2) Elimination of gender gap, (3) Flexible working style, (4) Workplace security, (5) Investment in human capital, (6) Diversity & inclusion, (7) Working condition in supply chain, and (8) Sound labor-management relations. We expect that JD8 will be used as a guideline to encourage dialogue between companies and investors and, as a result, will help not only realize a society where everyone is respected and can work without any concerns but also enable companies to accumulate human capital and increase their corporate value.
