CSR in the OKI Group

The OKI Group, as described in its corporate philosophy, aims at contributing to improve the quality of life for people around the world through its core business, namely the manufacturing and distribution of products and services that can serve the development of the information age. Our commitment to the pursuit and fulfillment of this idea underlies the group's corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

Based on this understanding, in order to cohesively promote our CSR initiatives, we enacted the OKI Group Charter of Corporate Conduct, as a statement of values to be shared by all OKI Group companies. We also established “OKI Group Code of Conduct”, which is to be conformed to by all executives and employees of the group. We have adopted the charter and code across the entire group, and are working to thoroughly implement them through various means such as training programs.

We will continue to consider social responsibilities from all the relevant angles ? namely, from the aspect of the United Nations Global Compact and the international standard ISO26000 regarding social responsibility along with the aspect that comes in the shape of expectations received from stakeholders, in order for us as the OKI Group to further boost the contribution to our regular business while simultaneously reconfirming the social responsibilities we should fulfill.
