Compliance

The Group does not merely adhere to laws and regulations, we also believe that it is our duty to approach social and ethical matters with sincerity and to behave responsibly as a company. To fulfill that duty, we established the Furukawa Company Group Charter of Corporate Conduct and the Furukawa Company Group Code of Conduct for Officers and Employees. With these, we are working to ensure that all officers and employees in our group recognize the importance of compliance and are thoroughly aware of the importance of compliance when they go about tackling their operations.

Compliance Promotion System
We established our group's Compliance Committee to deliberate important matters related to compliance. Matters deliberated at committee meetings are then reported on at our Sustainability Promotion Meeting. We then have information concerning compliance shared within the entire company.
Compliance Education
In addition to compliance training for newly hired employees, mid-level employees, and newly appointed managers, we also provide training, when necessary, concerning the Act against Delay in Payment of Subcontract Proceeds, Etc. to Subcontractors (Subcontracting Act), the Act on Prohibition of Private Monopolization and Maintenance of Fair Trade, and so on. We are also working to foster a corporate culture where compliance is emphasized. For instance, we issue a publication called Compliance News as a means to provide information on compliance to officers in the Group and occasionally provide explanations on the importance and priority levels of compliance-related matters to top management.
Internal Reporting System
Our group has introduced a whistle-blowing system purposed with detecting compliance violations early and correcting them.
Having set up a contact point for people to report to and consult with both internally and externally (at a law firm) means that we have a system which makes it possible for broader reporting and consultation to take place. The confidentiality and personal information of whistleblowers are also managed strictly.
If a report is provided or a consultation undertaken, the Compliance Committee will conduct an investigation and subsequently takes necessary measures.
Details on the whistle-blowing system are published on our internal portal site and booklets are distributed to our group's officers to promote awareness of the system.
