AISIN Group places importance on implementing fair and highly transparent management activities, and is striving to improve and enhance its corporate governance with a view to maximizing its corporate value, as an organization trusted by all of its stakeholders.
AISIN Group CSR activities contribute to the sustainable development of society and the earth
We believe that CSR is an essential aspect of corporate governance as the cornerstone that underpins the stable long-term growth of AISIN Group. To put that into practice, we have established the AISIN Group Principles of Corporate Behavior, outlining our commitment to the sustainable development of society and the earth as a whole, and to developing and maintaining sound relationships with all of our stakeholders. These principles form the basis for a wider range of CSR activities.
We also promote CSR activities based on these principles in overseas Group companies in light of the circumstances in respective countries and regions.
Implementing corporate principles through education and enlightenment
AISIN Group has formulated and is promoting the Guidelines in Compliance with Social Responsibility to provide concrete behavioral standards for all employees to fulfill the AISIN Group Principles of Corporate Behavior.
These guidelines have a Q&A section for each of the seven principles defined under the AISIN Group Principles of Corporate Behavior, namely Safety and Quality, Compliance, Disclosure of Information and Communication, Human Rights and Labor, Environment, Corporate Citizenship Activities and Top Management Leadership. This document serves to ensure that these principles are both easily understood and accessible in a booklet that is distributed to all employees.
Additionally, to promote employees’ awareness of CSR and encourage business practices with CSR in mind, CSR management training (for managers) and basic CSR training (for employees) are conducted at the six core Group companies. Training for members of top management is also conducted at overseas locations for the purpose of improving management capabilities and instilling an understanding of the AISIN Way, which conveys our values and behavioral principles.
CSR management training for improving awareness of management personnel
AISIN Group’s six core Group companies conduct CSR management training for management personnel in accordance with a common training program. As a preparatory step, all participating personnel are required to complete an e-learning course in which they cannot proceed to the next stage until they have answered all questions correctly. In fiscal 2018, a total of 1,315 participants raised their level of knowledge and awareness with regard to CSR through this training program.
