NEC is promoting the following efforts as part of risk management.
Compliance and Risk Management
At NEC we consider “compliance” to not only mean compliance with the law, but also in the wide sense to include compliance with socially accepted norms and common sense. Likewise, our “risk management” activities include those for properly understanding risks, including compliance violations that have an impact on the company’s business, and for taking preventive measures efficiently and effectively. NEC recognizes compliance and risk management as important issues that relate to the very existence of a company, and continues to promote company-wide efforts that include top management.
Basic Approach on Tax Matters
NEC stipulates in its Group Code of Conduct that:
- We will comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, and in-house regulations, including this Code, in every aspect of our corporate activities at all times. We will strive to ensure that all corporate activities are in compliance with normal business practices and social ethics.
- We will accurately and fairly maintain all accounting and other records in accordance with applicable laws, rules, regulations, and in-house regulations, and properly execute our duties. We will not carry out any unlawful accounting transactions or actions that may cause losses to the NEC Group.
NEC is actively involved in promoting fair trade by ensuring that it is in compliance with laws on competition and regulations relevant to anti-bribery by, for example, strengthening the system to comply with those laws and regulations. NEC always puts a premium on compliance and believes that doing so is of prime importance in this era of severe global competition. Preventing corruption such as bribery is one of the ten principles of the UN Global Compact and is an area of common concern worldwide. NEC is also actively involved in preventing corruption.
For many years NEC has been involved in the construction of social infrastructure through information and communications technologies. Social infrastructures, such as communication networks and core systems for traffic, defense, and financial services, should be restored quickly in the event of an emergency or disaster.
To enable prompt restoration of social infrastructures and core systems in the event of disasters, the NEC Group as a whole has formulated Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) and actively and systematically conducts Business Continuity Management (BCM) to maintain and improve BCPs.
The NEC Group positions information security as an important management activity and pursues its activities so that everybody can use information and communications technologies with a sense of security, leading to the creation of a prosperous society.
