In order to realize the management philosophy of contributing to the health and well-being of people around the world, the Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group acts with high ethical standards and aims to be a corporate group that is trusted by society. Compliance in our group is defined as each officer and employee aiming to act ethically and meet the needs of society in good faith as they conduct their business activities.
We regard compliance to be the base of all of our corporate activities, and therefore have established appropriate rules and created an organizational structure that acts in compliance with all laws and ordinances, internal and external guidelines and rules, and social conventions. We also promote compliance by improving our understanding of important issues through surveys of compliance awareness.
Under the mid-term business plan that started from 2016, in order to leap forward to become a GSP, we are striving in good faith to meet the demands of society and to build and maintain healthy and favorable relationships with all stakeholders we reach through our business.
In January of 2016, we established the “Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group Compliance Policy” to define our legal and ethical responsibility concerning our relationship with society and employees, compliance with rules and regulations, respect for human rights, protection of the environment, and information management. This policy has been translated into English, Chinese, and the other languages of the countries in which our sites are located as we roll out this policy among all group members.
In October of 2016, we established the "The Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group Code of Conduct", which defines concrete actions of the "Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group Compliance Policy".
This code has been translated into English, Chinese, and the other languages of the countries in which our sites are located. We roll out this code among all group members as rules each officer and employee must comply while conducting business activity.
