Compliance structure and initiatives
The OPTEX Group has created the OPTEX Group Compliance Promotion Committee to ensure that the corporate activities and actions of officers and employees of OPTEX Group Co., Ltd. (the “Company”) and its group companies are based on a law-abiding spirit. Chaired by the President of the Company, with its members elected from the operating companies in the Group, the OPTEX Group Compliance Promotion Committee ensures that a system is in place that promotes a better understanding and awareness of compliance initiatives and that effectively shares compliance matters with each Group company.
The Committee conducts activities such as checking legal compliance within the Group, sharing and reviewing compliance matters, and risk management. In addition, the Company has established the OPTEX Group Code of Conduct, for which the Committee is responsible, to promote efforts to raise compliance awareness of all officers and employees of the Group and ensure that they are law-abiding.
The OPTEX Group has also developed internal whistleblowing systems for the purpose of collecting risk information at an early stage and dealing with it properly. It is explicitly stipulated in the Compliance Regulations that whistleblowers will not be treated disadvantageously, and all members of the Company and the Group companies are made aware of this.
