“Our Commitment” states the principles of our conduct which we should adhere to in doing our business. The “Kuraray Group Code of Conduct” serves as guidelines to implement the commitment in performing day-to-day work. The Group’s top executive has declared that we will comply with laws and regulations and “Our Commitment” under any and all circumstances. To share these principles and commitments among all Kuraray Group personnel throughout the world, the Compliance Handbook has been compiled containing the foregoing declaration by the top executive and explanations of the “Kuraray Group Code of Conduct.” To disseminate these principles and commitments among all Kuraray Group employees, a compliance handbook written in ten languages, Japanese, English, German, Chinese, Hangul, Russian, Flemish, Czech, French and Italian has been distributed to the Group employees worldwide.

The regional committees are working to effectively implement not only Group-wide targets decided by the Risk Management and Compliance Subcommittee but also region-specific ones
