Business Code of Conduct

NGK Group Code of Conduct

The NGK Group Code of Conduct has been compiled as a guideline for everyone who works within the NGK Group so that they are aware of what is expected of them in terms of work-related compliance in order to ensure honesty and reliability in our business activities. All NGK Group employees will act according to this code as they fulfill their social responsibilities and build trust in NGK.
At the beginning of fiscal 2020, the Chief Compliance Officer delivered an awareness-raising message to the entire NGK Group including Group companies in Japan and overseas about the Code of Conduct. At NGK, Group Compliance Department staff conducted 23 training sessions at model workplaces and also explained putting into practice the Code of Conduct in the NGK Group Philosophy Sharing Program in fiscal 2020. Awareness and understanding of the Code of Conduct is also facilitated with training given to all recent graduate and mid-career hires upon their joining the company, as well as with refresher training given to employees upon their promotion.
