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 2020, 11 sites in Japan and 11 sites overseas underwent ISO14001 sampling audit by SGS, with no material legal violations found.)

Compliance Hotline

The Takasago group has a compliance hot line that enables all employees and other stakeholders such as suppliers, customers to report any compliance issues through the channel and all information submitted will be treated in the strictest confidence. The channel has been displayed at offices and factories so that our stakeholders are able to find where to report.

Human Rights

The Takasago group fully recognizes respect of human rights as our corporate responsibility. The Charter of Corporate Behavior and Code of Conduct, revised in 2018, includes respect of human rights, which is to be incorporated into our corporate culture.

To further strengthen its commitment, “Takasago Group Human Rights Policy” was developed based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenants on Human Rights, the International Labor Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
