Ethics and Compliance
We, Nagoya Electric Works, have been responding to customers’ needs under the slogan of “create products that contribute to society,” with a corporate management philosophy of “open and aboveboard.”
We believe that a corporation must respect human rights and comply with relevant laws and international rules, as well as with the spirit of said laws and rules. At the same time, it is important for each employee to take voluntary actions to create a sustainable society in accordance with societal common sense. Nagoya Electric Works recognizes that compliance with relevant laws is an important task in our business management. Therefore, we have established “Compliance Guidelines” so that executives, all the employees and all other relevant parties can realize our corporate management philosophy. In-house systems have been organized to ensure that these guidelines are followed, and we have also established a Corporate Ethics Committee, Corporate Ethics Promotion Division and Corporate Ethics Helpline.
Corporate Ethics Committee
The Corporate Ethics Committee, consisting mainly of top management, focuses on providing guidance in relation to drafts of basic conduct guidelines as well as action plans drafted by each division, and on promoting plan implementation.
Corporate Ethics Helpline
We created this Helpline to enable direct conveyance to management of any pertinent issues regarding corporate ethics in order to prevent actions that might violate our corporate ethics and to quickly resolve any related problems that arise.
