Our CSR Charter was established based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact*1 and Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC).*2 In addition, as bylaws for the CSR Charter, we have established CSR Regulations, which include human rights- and labor-related provisions such as guaranteeing the freedom to establish labor unions and engage in collective bargaining.

*1 Ten principles of the UN Global Compact
