At Shionogi, compliance remains our No. 1 priority—in short, the basis for company survival. Compliance in Shionogi means compliance not only with laws, rules and regulations, but also with social standards, and it also includes ethical behavior. This approach underpins every aspect of our business. We have published the Shionogi Group Compliance Policy, under which all directors and employees are required to comply with laws and regulations as well as practicing ethical behavior. We also have published both Japanese and English versions of the Shionogi Compliance Handbook, which sets behavioral criteria to be observed in the course of daily operations.
In this manner, we are striving to deepen understanding and recognition of the importance of compliance across the Group as a whole.
Our intention is for all employees to consistently hold themselves to the highest ethical standards in order to support sustained growth for Shionogi.
