Ethical business conduct and compliance with applicable laws and regulations are fundamental aspects of Sony’s corporate culture. Sony Mobile Communications has adopted the Sony Group Code of Conduct to strengthen our corporate conduct and culture, and it is a part of Sony’s Global Compliance Network, which consists of the corporate headquarters, a global compliance leadership team, and regional compliance officers around the world. We have a Compliance Hotline System to help ensure that resources are available for employees to raise concerns or seek guidance about legal and ethical matters.
Sony Group Code of Conduct
The Sony Group Code of Conduct was adopted by Sony Corporation in May 2003. The Code of Conduct sets the basic internal standards to be observed by everyone within the Sony Group to emphasize and further strengthen corporate governance, business ethics, and compliance systems throughout the Sony Group. In addition to legal and compliance standards, the Code of Conduct sets out the Sony Group’s basic policies concerning ethical business practices and activities on such topics as respect for human rights, safety of products and services, environmental conservation, and information disclosure. The Code of Conduct has been adopted and implemented by each Sony Group company globally and is the subject of frequent “tone from the top” messaging and other training. Sony Mobile Communications adopted the Code of Conduct when Sony acquired all shares of our company in 2012.
Sony Mobile Communications maintains a Compliance Hotline System, which is a resource for employees to report concerns on ethical matters or seek guidance about possible violations of laws or internal policies. The Compliance Hotline allows Sony Mobile Communications to swiftly respond to potential risks of any such concerns or possible violations. The Compliance Hotline system is available worldwide and is directly linked to the Corporate Executive Officer in charge of Compliance. It is operated by an external company independently from the ordinary line of command, and callers are protected from retaliation when making a report. Summaries of hotline calls, results of investigations, and updates on the operation of the system are reported to our Compliance Officer.
