Participation in the United Nations Global Compact
In April 2005, the CITIZEN Group declared its participation in the United Nations Global Compact, which advocates universal principals regarding human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.We referred to “the United Nations Global Compact” when revising the “Citizen Group Code of Conduct ,” and it became the foundation for the CITIZEN Group’s CSR activities.
In addition, we have cooperated in loaning a staff to the United Nation’s Global Compact Network Japan from April 2017, and we will continue such efforts as a member of international society and a solid global company.
