Compliance efforts

"When you are faced with a choice between integrity and profit, choose integrity without hesitation."

1.Meaning of compliance
While the term "compliance" is sometimes used to mean "upholding laws", today the term is also used to mean "upholding corporate ethics".
For the Marubeni Group, compliance means conducting our business activities while observing laws,
regulations and internal company rules in accordance with the philosophy incorporated in the Company Creed,
Marubeni Management Philosophy and Marubeni Corporate Principles, and also maintaining a high standard of ethics.
2.Who Practices Compliance
Compliance within a corporation can only be achieved when every director and employee in the corporation understands the significance of compliance and takes appropriate steps to adhere to its principles, not only in business but also in their private lives.
3.Role of the Compliance Committee
The Compliance Committee, under the direct control of the President, serves as an organization to support and provide instruction to ensure compliance by the directors and employees of the Marubeni Group.
4.Thorough Legal Compliance
We hold compliance training sessions to educate our employees and provide them with guidance in matters related to compliance. We also distribute our “Compliance Manual” to all officers and employees to help raise their awareness of compliance issues.
