SIIX GROUP CODE OF CONDUCT

The SIIX Group Code of Conduct:

We have always carried out our corporate activities based on the Corporate Mission and Corporate Objectives. However, the environment surrounding our company has been changing drastically, including the rapid progress of globalization of economic activity and global-scale environmental issues, and we have entered an era in which corporate social responsibility is being demanded even more strongly. This means that higher levels of ethical standards and social contributions, not simply “compliance and fairness”, are being demanded by society today - standards and activities that contribute to the realization of sustainable society. These include such things as contribution to the global environment, contribution to the community, contribution to the maintenance of security arrangement and so on. Fulfilling such social responsibilities in these ways as a public entity of society has thus become an essential key today for us to become a company that “engages stakeholders and awakens a sense of shared values in all stakeholders”, which is a part of our Corporate Objective.

With such a background, we decided to formulate The SIIX Group Code of Conduct, which includes the compliance of laws and regulations of course, and also the concepts of corporate ethics and social responsibility, and then share it in the entire SIIX Group to aim at a company group trusted even more by society. This Code of Conduct is designed to help us realize our Corporate Mission and Corporate Objectives by providing specific standards and guidelines that should be observed in individual business activities. Using the Code of Conduct as a compass for our right direction of business activities, we will at all times strive to perform operations with integrity and ethics, prioritizing the compliance of laws and regulations and the respect for social rules, not simply being held to short-term profits and business success.
