Activities

At the EXEDY Group we ensure that we raise the awareness of all employees regarding our CSR activities, and promote CSR as a “way for our employees to approach their work”. After learning the basics during the new employee training, we acquire a wide range of ideas of CSR through regular reading sessions of the Code of Conduct and incorporate them in our everyday work.

The EXEDY Group’s CSR website consists of the following items:

The code for putting our CSR into practice

2018 Code of Conduct (ten languages)

The EXEDY Code of Conduct is distributed to all employees, including employees of our affiliated companies with the aim of spreading the basic policies, action guidelines and business manners to each and every member of the EXEDY Group working across the globe. The 2018 edition of our Code of Conduct was distributed to approx. 18,000 employees in 44 locations in 25 different countries.

The EXEDY Code of Conduct, first published in 1998 has been revised a total of 11 times, including the revision of the latest version issued on April 1, 2018, to respond to changes in various laws and regulations and changes in the social environment. Since 2013, we revise the Code of Conduct once a year so all employees can be informed on the latest information regarding our “EXEDY WAY” and “Midterm Consolidated Management Plan” showing our growth strategies.
In 2014 we started the localization of the Code of Conduct and it is now available in the following ten languages: Japanese, English, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Spanish, Portuguese, Malaysian and Kannada.

In addition to the Corporate Philosophy, Midterm Consolidated Management Plan and basic policies, it contains basic rules regarding compliance and corporate ethics and business manner, and through reading sessions at each department employees gain a thorough understanding.

CSR Training

New Employee Training

Every year in April we carry out CSR training at our Headquarters and Ueno Division for all our new employees, including employees at our affiliated companies. Here our employees learn about the basics of CSR and the importance of adhering to the Code of Conduct.

Stratified Education

In our management training, newly appointed managers learn about managing their employees (labor management, power harassment training, mental health etc.) and subcontracting law to enable them to carry out fair transactions with cooperating companies. With this training we aim to develop the participants into leaders who support our company in a way that earns the trust of our stakeholders, by reconfirming and further raising awareness regarding the basis of our manufacturing: Safety→Quality→Donpisha*→Cost and its order of priority.

*Donpisha… The company-wide activities of instilling ‘what is needed, when it is needed, in the quantity needed’, in all processes of manufacturing from purchasing to shipment.
