Compliance

We are committed to various group-wide initiatives intended to further improve and strengthen compliance systems in accordance with our Corporate Code of Compliance.

Compliance structure

In order to reinforce our compliance, our Board Meeting has established group-wide compliance policies, "Code of Conduct" and the other codes of conduct, and the executive officer responsible for compliance decides medium- to long-term and annual action plans. Under the supervision of the executive officer responsible for compliance, the Legal Department promotes various group-wide initiatives for the entire Group including affiliated companies.

Activities to improve compliance

Rank-based training

We provide systematic training courses on corporate ethics for employees, targeting three specific employee ranks, new employees, promoted mid-level employees, and promoted managerial employees, according to their respective job positions and roles.

Awareness initiatives in each workplace

To ensure the penetration and adoption of compliance throughout the workplace, we conduct training courses on compliance for each workplace once every six months. This training has become a forum for active discussion within each workplace based on a training program that covers violations of corporate ethics and legal violations and similar actions prepared based on situations that actually arose at other companies. We have been implementing this program also at our Group companies in Japan.

Awareness activities on our portal


Portal “Understandable Corporate Ethics”

Our corporate intranet hosts a portal titled "Understandable Corporate Ethics." It lists various kinds of manuals including the manuals as to basic information on contracts, competition laws in various countries, observance of anti-bribery laws and subcontract law, links to websites covering related laws and regulations, and a FAQ page. This site presents the latest available information, and it is updated whenever the relevant laws and regulations are revised.

Whistleblower System

As part of our initiatives to implement compliance, we have established the Whistleblower System under which facts or suspicions of compliance violations inside the company can be freely reported to the internal reporting desks we have set up both inside and outside the company. The intention of the whistleblower is always respected in determining whether or not to disclose the details of the information and the name of the whistleblower, with the objective of protecting the whistleblower.
