Compliance system

The Takasago Group considers compliance to be one of its top priority management issues and strives to continuously improve its compliance system while ensuring fair and proper business activities and effective corporate governance. As part of these efforts, we have introduced various systems and rules concerning compliance, such as the Charter of Corporate Behavior and Code of Conduct, which stipulate strict compliance with laws, regulations and social norms.

Audit and Inspection department conducts operational audits in order to ensure the proper execution of business operations. Furthermore, the status of conformity to the related regulations is checked as an auditee upon external audit to the management systems, e.g., ISO14001. (In fiscal 2014, 9 sites in Japan and 8 sites overseas underwent ISO14001 sampling audit by SGS, with no material legal violations found.)
