Anti-Bribery Initiatives

International agencies, such as the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as well as national governments have required global companies to implement an initiatives to prevent bribery.

To reinforce its anti-bribery control, we at the Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group have established the “Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group Policy for Anti-Bribery Measures” and “Regulation for Anti-Bribery” and have rolled them out to group companies with the president’s commitment, while providing annual continual training to executives and employees.

Our group companies pursue efforts on the prevention of bribery by installing an anti-bribery manager and help desk according to the guideline and regulation. We monitor and audit how each group company complies with the operational rules on bribery prevention and revision to anti-bribery low in each country, thus developing a framework for preventing bribery on a group-wide basis.
