Viewing compliance as the foundation of CSR, the NGK Group positions enhancing trustworthiness as the most important initiative and strives to create specific systems to inculcate this view among employees, prevent corruption and comply with laws and regulations.
To realize and protect the NGK Group corporate philosophy of creating new value by providing products and technologies that contribute to a better social environment, we established the NGK Group Guidelines for Corporate Behavior and thoroughly promote awareness.
The NGK Group Guidelines for Corporate Behavior and Behavioral Guidelines, initiatives conducted individually, are thoroughly observed. We created awareness handbooks a paper on awareness summarizing guidelines for corporate behavior and portable compliance cards distributed to all employees including contract manufacturing employees and temporary employees, at NGK and all domestic Group companies.
Efforts are also made to ensure a thorough understanding of the Guidelines for Corporate Behavior and Behavioral Guidelines among NGK employees at training for new hires, while promotion-related training includes an explanation of the Behavioral Guidelines.
The purpose and significance of the Guidelines for Corporate Behavior and Behavioral Guidelines are also explained at CSR Talk Live events held by the NGK Group. At overseas Group companies, rules are formulated in response to the specifics of each company and country and region in light of the Behavioral Guidelines.
