CSR ManagementPrint Page

Zeon regards CSR activity as all activity undertaken in order to continue being “a company trusted and valued by society.”

In April 2010 we established our “ZEON CSR Policy” and a more specific “CSR Code of Conduct (PDF: 229KB)”, and in January 2011 we set out our CSR Promotion Structure.

CSR Management Framework

The CSR Management Framework is comprised of the CSR Conference and seven committees.
Chaired by the President, the CSR Conference is the chief body for decision-making on matters relating to CSR, and is held six times a year. The Conferences are held to discuss and finalize committee activities, measures and annual activity plans, and to give necessary instructions based on progress reports.
The committees report to the CSR Conference and advance CSR activities in specific areas.
The seven committees are the CSR Basic Policy Committee, Compliance Committee, Risk Management Committee, Public Relations Committee, Quality Assurance Committee, PL Committee and Environmental and Safety Affairs Committee.
