MHI will at all times respond firmly to and will not have any relationship with any organization, group or individual, including, but not limited to, crime syndicates, gangs, mafias, terrorists, drug dealers or other criminal organizations that are engaged in unlawful activities or would damage the Company's reputation in accordance with the MHI Group Code of Conduct.
MHI has established departments to take measures in the event that unjust demands are made by such elements. The departments work together with related divisions or group companies to deal comprehensively with any incident that arises. In addition, MHI has issued alerts to relevant divisions and group companies and conducted compliance training, to thoroughly make all employees understand the essentials of how to be prepared for and respond to any unjust demand made of them. To gain advice and support for dealing with such demands, the Company also works proactively to build close cooperative relationships with police, attorney-at-law, and organizations specialized in such matters.
As ordinances to eliminate organized crime groups were enacted by all prefectures in Japan since 2011, MHI Group has added clauses to its contracts with clients and business partners accordingly and further step up efforts to eliminate such elements.
