Showa Denko Group, under its Vision, has strived to realize “a company contributing to the sound growth of society” that contributes toward creating a society where affluence and sustainability are harmonized.
We have established our slogan as a declaration to firmly “promise” our stakeholders this policy.
Also, in order to realize our Vision and develop the Group sustainably, we have defined what we should do as the “Our Code of Conduct.”
We at the Showa Denko Group will provide products and services that are useful and safe and exceed our customers' expectations, thereby enhancing the value of the Group, giving satisfaction to our shareholders, and contributing to the sound growth of international society as a responsible corporate citizen.
In order to be trusted and evaluated by society through the continuous improvement of the corporate value, it is important to maintain and develop appropriate relations with stakeholders such as shareholders, customers, business partners, local communities and employees. We clarify this as "Our Vision" and promote the management for its realization.
Corporate message: “Act!”
We shall listen more to customers and further hone our technologies, and shall thereby
Act to create products and services that touch “the heart”
Act to offer solutions that make “society” better
We act to touch the heart and make society better.
To start the Group’s new story to wow the world, we made a clapperboard the symbol of our corporate message.
Companies of the Group are stages for employees.
This symbol also expresses the strong will of each employee to act to touch the heart and make society better.
Our Code of ConductFor the Showa Denko Group to fulfill its corporate social responsibility and contribute widely to society, it is necessary for the Group to have a clear vision based on which individual employees can take actions with ownership. To this end, the Group established the corporate code of conduct in 1998 and subsequently revised it in 2012 as “Our Code of Conduct,” asking all directors and employees to abide by it. Since then the Group has been demonstrating its corporate approach through the code of conduct to all stakeholders, including shareholders, customers, employees, local communities and suppliers.
The environment surrounding our business has recently been changing day by day, and a range of changes have also occurred in relation to international initiatives related to corporate social responsibility, such as the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Amid this situation, the Showa Denko Group is expanding its overseas business, which makes corporate governance even more important for the Group.
In order for all directors and employees of the Group to recognize these changes in society and take actions with ownership toward the shared goal, we revised Our Code of Conduct in May 2020.
（Our Code of Conduct is applicable to each Group company in the world.）
