Basic Policies of Sustainability Initiatives

Seven & i Holdings conducts its business activities based on its corporate creed of aiming to be a sincere company trusted by all stakeholders. We have stated the actions for realizing that creed in our Corporate Action Guidelines.

The Corporate Action Guidelines present the basic attitudes adopted by all of the Group’s Directors, Audit & Supervisory Board Members, and employees. The Guidelines comprise the Basic Policy, which sets out the approach of the Group as a whole, and the Code of Corporate Conduct, which sets out rules for conduct.

Furthermore, each Group company has established detailed guidelines and conduct rules appropriate for its business format at the concrete action level and, together with the Guidelines, will keep all new recruits and newly appointed managerial employees fully informed through their training. In addition, the extent of understanding of the Corporate Creed and compliance awareness is regularly checked in the Employee Engagement Survey.
