Ensure Strict Compliance

The Nichirei Group, in accordance with the Group’s Management Principles and Code of Conduct, complies with laws and regulations, refrains from dishonest or antisocial corporate activities, and is committed to fair corporate activities befitting a public organ of society.
Formulated in April 1999, Nichirei’s Code of Conduct was focused mainly on Japan. As the company expanded globally, the content of the code became less suitable. Therefore, in April 2014, Nichirei established a single international version of its Code of Conduct, designed to strengthen corporate governance for the entire Group and to better ensure legal compliance and ethical business activities. The revision included addition of “respect for human rights” as the top priority, derived in part from the Ten Principles in the four areas of the UN Global Compact. Principles on preventing corruption, judged to be important from the standpoint of global compliance, were also incorporated, including the prohibition of insider trading, and involvement in, or dealings with, antisocial forces.
In addition, the Group has established the Nichirei Group Sustainable Supply Chain Policy, which includes matters on compliance, fair trading, and human rights. The Group procures products and services in accordance with this policy, and asks suppliers to assent to and cooperate in complying with it.
