We will continue to keep our eyes on the future as we work to live up to the expectations and trust invested in us by society.

Basic Policy and CSR Code of Conduct

Each of the companies in Furukawa Electric Group develops CSR activities in line with the following Group basic policy.

The CSR Code of Conduct defines fundamental rules of behavior for Furukawa Electric executives and employees to follow in conducting corporate activities based on the Group philosophy and from the perspective of corporate social responsibility.

Furukawa Electric Group Human Rights Policy

Based on the “Furukawa Electric Group Philosophy” and “Furukawa Electric Group CSR Code of Conduct”, Furukawa Electric Group (hereafter “the Group”) has respected human rights through the Group's business activities such as the establishment of “Furukawa Electric Group CSR Deployment Guideline for Business Partners” and the distribution of “CSR Compliance Handbook” among all officers and employees.

However, the various ESG (including human rights) items requested from stakeholders are rapidly increasing as dramatic changes in social situations and business environment, for example, the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) were adopted by the UN in 2015.

With the above in mind, in order to respect human rights of all stakeholders affected by the Group's business activities, the Group established the Furukawa Electric Group Human Rights Policy in January 27th, 2020.

United Nations Global Compact

Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. has been involved the United Nations Global Compact since February 24, 2020. For the sustainable growth of Furukawa Electric Group as a global company, we believe that the respect and implementation of the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact will build stronger foundations for our management and operation.
