Global Social and Environmental Stewardship
CSR Activities Based on the Kyocera Philosophy
Shortly after its founding, KYOCERA adopted its management rationale: “To provide opportunities for the material and intellectual growth of all our employees, and through our joint efforts, contribute to the advancement of society and humankind.” Management is based on the KYOCERA Philosophy, which uses the concept “What is the right thing to do as a human being?” as its decision-making criterion. This also forms the basis for the KYOCERA Group’s CSR activities.
Through implementation of the KYOCERA Philosophy, we work to find solutions to corporate citizenship issues, build relationships of mutual trust with our stakeholders, and aim for the sustained development of the KYOCERA Group. At the same time, we endeavour to contribute to the healthy development of society.
Global CSR approach
The KYOCERA Group is promoting globalization of CSR activities. This is being undertaken through ongoing improvements based on the international standard ISO26000, relating to social responsibility. Issued by the International Organization for Standardization in November 2010, ISO26000 is an international guidance standard concerning social responsibility. This standard is divided into seven core subjects that should be considered in implementation of CSR activities (organizational governance, human rights, labour practices, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, community involvement and development).
Furthermore, the KYOCERA Group concurs with and participates in the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
