“Our Commitment” states the principles of our conduct which we should adhere to in our business activities that have diverse points of contact with society. The “Kuraray Group Code of Conduct” serves as guidelines to implement the commitment in performing day-to-day work. The President has declared that we will comply with laws and regulations and “Our Commitment” under all circumstances. To share these principles and commitments among all Kuraray Group employees throughout the world, the Compliance Handbook has been compiled containing the foregoing declaration by the President and explanations of the “Kuraray Group Code of Conduct” and distributed to all employees in Japan and overseas.
In fiscal 2021, we renewed the handbook with a user-friendly design to make it accessible for all employees. We localized the handbook into twelve languages and distributed it to Group companies in Japan and overseas.
In addition, we have appointed compliance officers at plants and overseas offices of Kuraray and Group companies, and have organized regional compliance committees. Since fiscal 2019, we have linked the timing of the activities of the regional compliance committee and Risk Management and Compliance Committee to raise awareness of compliance throughout the Group.
