In order to be a sustainable business, we must fulfill our social responsibilities and every individual employee should always act with dignity. As part of this, we have enacted the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, and promote a corporate culture that emphasizes ethics and compliance. In the past fiscal year (2017), through messages from the President and information sessions for employee supervisors, we have been working to ensure employees recognize the importance of upholding the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and understand what it entails. We also distribute educational communications that deepen understanding of ethics and compliance. The CCBJH Group Ethics & Compliance Committee has also been established to make policy decisions related to our internal information system and employee awareness and education activities within the CCBJH Group. The committee met four times during the past fiscal year. We have put in place systems so that matters that may involve violation of laws and regulations that arise in the course of business activities can be dealt with swiftly. For example, the Ethics & Compliance Reporting Hotline—in-house and at an external legal counsel’s office—can be accessed directly by email and through a telephone hotline by those seeking advice.
