Compliance / Integrity

Kao upholds the principle of integrity, passed down from our founder, as one of the core values of its corporate philosophy, the Kao Way. Integrity means to behave lawfully and ethically and conduct fair and honest business activities. Kao regards integrity as the starting point of compliance and promotes it as a foundation for earning the respect and trust of all stakeholders.

To put the above policy into practice in daily work, we have defined the following three compliance priorities. These activities are implementing by the Kao Group as a whole.

1. Establish and revise the Kao Business Conduct Guidelines (BCG) and other internal compliance-related guidelines
2. Set up and operate compliance hotlines to enable early discovery and resolution of legal and ethical violations
3. Conduct educational activities to promote each employee’s understanding of the BCG
