Structure

Human rights matters are deliberated on by the Corporate Ethics Promotion Committee, which is set up under the Board of Directors and the Management Strategy Conference and is chaired by the executive officer in charge of compliance and participated in by representatives of the Domestic Anritsu Group companies. This committee discusses and formulates the basic policy on corporate ethics of the Group, makes revisions to the Code of Conduct, plans for intra-Company monitoring with a corporate ethics survey, conducts analysis, makes improvements, and plans for other promotional activities related to ethics and compliance. It also reports annually on the status of ethics and compliance across the Anritsu Group to the Board of Directors.

The Anritsu Group implements human rights initiatives throughout the value chain, including customers, suppliers and employees, under the joint leadership of the departments of Human Resource and Administration, Sustainability Promotion, Legal, and Global Procurement Operation. In order to promote diversity in a number of ways, including by advancing the career development of women, promoting life-work balance, hiring more people with disabilities, and developing the careers of foreign national employees and senior employees, we set up the Project Team as a special unit for those tasks.
