Compliance

Basic Policy

Compliance

INPEX is systematically developing a compliance system, an indispensable requirement for the sustained development of a company, and strives to ensure compliance with laws and regulations and adherence to corporate ethics. Specifically, we have instituted the Compliance Committee, which deliberates basic policies, plans, and significant matters pertaining to compliance, and manages the status of compliance practice to promote unified compliance initiatives throughout the Group.
In addition, in accordance with the Corporate Social Responsibility Principles, we have instituted the Code of Conduct, which prescribes matters to be observed to realize compliance, in order to increase compliance awareness among executives and employees in an effort to put the Business Principles into practice.

Anti-bribery and Anti-corruption Initiatives

The Code of Conduct stipulates the building of sound and appropriate relationships with government and administrative authorities (prohibition of political donations except in cases permitted under relevant laws and regulations) and compliance with the anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws and regulations in the countries in which we operate. We make no donations relating to political activities.
We have participated in the United Nations Global Compact since December 2011 and have declared our commitment to preventing corruption. Based on risk assessment results conducted by an external law firm, we have revised the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABC) Guidelines introduced in October 2014, renamed the ABC Policy, for the purpose of further strengthening measures to prevent bribery, corruption, and other improper behavior. ABC procedures have been prepared accordingly. The Policy and procedures began implementations in January 2017.

Respect for Human Rights

We support international standards relating to human rights, such as the International Bill of Human Rights, the International Labor Standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO), and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and participate in the United Nations Global Compact, which promotes voluntary activities by companies as good corporate citizens.

Case Study

Response to UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and Measures to Enhance Human Rights Management

INPEX released “Modern Slavery Act Statement FY2015” as a response to the Modern Slavery Act 2015, introduced in the UK in October 2015 for the purpose of disclosing measures against human rights abuses such as slave labor and human trafficking in companies, businesses, and supply chains. In the statement, we have disclosed the INPEX Group’s policies, systems, and future initiatives relating to the prevention of slave labor and human trafficking.
In order to enhance human rights management, in fiscal 2016 we ascertained the current status of human rights risk by involving an information search, questionnaires and interview surveys, and issue analysis. In the information search, we gathered human rights abuse cases involving abuses such as child labor and forced labor, and conducted country risk studies of countries in which the INPEX Group operates. In addition, for each project we circulated a questionnaire to confirm matters such as the existence of policies covering human rights abuse cases and the development status of human rights management systems. We also conducted interviews at business sites where risk was deemed to be high. Areas of further consideration were identified based on the outcome of these studies.
One response devised in light of the above results was the institution and public disclosure in May 2017 of a human rights policy for the entire INPEX Group that indicates the Group’s stance on respect for human rights. We will strive to strengthen respect for human rights groupwide through concrete initiatives aligned with this policy.
