The OKI Group, as described in its corporate philosophy, aims at contributing to people around the world through its core business, namely the provision of products and services that can serve the development of the information age. What underlies the Group's CSR initiatives is our commitment to the pursuit and fulfillment of this idea.
Based on this recognition, we enacted the OKI Group Charter of Corporate Conduct to ensure the Group as a whole fulfi lls its social responsibilities precisely in ways that comport with the Group's corporate philosophy. In addition, in accordance with the Charter, OKI set up the OKI Group Code of Conduct to be conformed to by all OKI executives and employees. This Code of Conduct has been adopted across all Group companies and incorporated into OKI's educational programs. The Charter and the Code are regarded as the basis for OKI Group Values that all Group executives and employees hold in esteem in their pursuit of increasing corporate value.
The OKI Group is advancing ESG initiatives while reconfirming what social responsibilities the Group ought to fulfill in light of various global norms such as the United Nations Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as the expectations that all our stakeholders direct toward us.
The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is a voluntary initiative for participating in the creation of a global framework whereby companies and organizations act as good members of society to realize sustainable growth by demonstrating responsible and creative leadership. Under the commitment of top management, which agrees to subscribe to the 10 principles concerning the protection of human rights, the eradication of unfair labor practices, environmental measures, and anti-corruption, signatory companies and organizations to the UNGC are continuing to make efforts toward these goals.
In May 2010, OKI signed the UNGC to declare its support for the Compact. It also became a member of the Global Compact Network Japan, a local network in Japan. The OKI Group supports the UNGC's 10 principles and will work to contribute to creating a sustainable society.
