Compliance / Integrity

Honest, decent and virtuous corporate citizens seeking the support of society at large

The Kao Group fundamentally adheres to ethical principles that go beyond mere compliance with the law. Accordingly, Group companies conduct business activities while seeking the support of society at large by acting as honest, decent and virtuous corporate citizens.

To help ensure such business conduct, Kao Corporation has established the Compliance Committee and drafted Kao's Business Conduct Guidelines. Moreover, based on these efforts, the companies in the Kao Group have also drafted their own business conduct guidelines in line with the social rules and customs of the regions in which they operate and the nature of their particular businesses. We also support the ten principles of the UN Global Compact that address the four areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment, and anti-corruption, and we remain committed to implementing compliance with these principles across the entire Kao Group.

Further details regarding Kao's Business Conduct Guidelines are available at the "Kao Corporation: Compliance" page of the Kao corporate website.
