The Hitachi Group Codes of Conduct have been established as specific codes of conduct that apply to all companies of the Hitachi Group. Under the leadership of top management, we will thoroughly implement the Codes of Conduct to ensure that all our business activities are conducted on the basis of corporate ethics and compliance, in accordance with “Basics and Ethics.”
The Hitachi Group Codes of Conduct shall apply to all officers and employees of Hitachi, Ltd. and its consolidated subsidiaries. All subject companies shall set or revise these Codes of Conduct as the “Hitachi Group Codes of Conduct” or as the codes of conduct of their own company at a board of directors meeting or other decision-making organ of the company, and take appropriate measures so that all their officers and employees accurately understand these Codes of Conduct.
Companies may also enact their own individual codes of conduct, incorporating the contents of these Codes of Conduct. Such individual codes of conduct can alter the contents in accordance with the legal systems, social customs and business characteristics of their respective nations or regions, or add stipulations that are not included in these Codes of Conduct. However, those individual stipulations may not under any circumstances contradict the stipulations of these Codes of Conduct or relax their contents. When companies do establish individual codes of conduct, those codes of conduct must expressly stipulate that they have been prepared based on or referring to the Hitachi Group Codes of Conduct.
