The SCREEN Group believe our purpose forms the cornerstone of our Group’s corporate philosophy, and by implementing it, we are fulfilling our corporate social responsibility (CSR). To support these efforts, we have established both a CSR Charter and a Code of Conduct. While the CSR Charter includes principles of action based on our corporate philosophy, the Code of Conduct lays out standards that each Group member should comply with. All executives and employees are expected to practice responsible behavior as good corporate citizens. We leverage our core surface processing, direct imaging, and image processing technologies, continuously developed since our founding, to create new and improved applications. This work enables us to supply our customers around the world with innovative technologies, products, and services that can help to address various societal issues and needs. Our overall goal remains, as always, to contribute to the sustainable development of global society, by striving to be excellent solution creators.
Based on the CSR Charter and a Code of Conduct, the SCREEN Group regularly conducts training that includes prevention of discrimination and harassment, respect for diversity, and prevention of corruption such as bribery and corruption. The domestic group conducts e-learning programs, while the overseas group deploys materials translated into multiple languages to ensure that all employees are familiar with the Code of Conduct.
