Compliance with relevant laws and regulations is important to our corporate management as well as to all directors and employees at the Kaneka Group.
Our corporate Intranet provides ready access to our Compliance Guidebook, which provides a clear explanation of our Ethical Code of Conduct as well as the laws and regulations to be observed by all of our directors and employees. Additionally, a variety of training sessions and meetings, and activities of the Compliance Subcommittee ensure that we strictly adhere to our compliance policies.
The compliance online course for all employees, launched in 2014, was expanded to include Group companies in Japan, and there were 4,656 participants from 42 companies in fiscal 2016.
Training sessions on the Antimonopoly Act are conducted regularly with all of managerial officers from Kaneka and Group companies in Japan who are involved in sales, purchasing, and business development, all of whom are required to submit a pledge. Additionally, CSR evaluation audits were carried out for all Group companies in Japan, the U.S. and Europe. Going forward, Group companies outside Japan will be included as well.
Moreover, we set up compliance consultation hotlines both internally and with outside law firms in order to answer inquiries from those within the Group. We strive to respond quickly to provide a rapid resolution to any concerns that may arise.
