The Chiyoda Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

【Corporate philosophy】

Enhance our business in aiming for harmony between energy and the environment and contribute to the sustainable development of a society as an integrated engineering company through the use of our collective wisdom and painstakingly developed technology.

The Chiyoda Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Since it was founded in 1948, Chiyoda has worked to contribute to the advancement of society by providing the most appropriate infrastructures satisfying requirements from every region and period.
The business environment around the Chiyoda Group has drastically changed and become unclear as a result of prolonged low oil prices caused by the shale oil revolution and a demand downturn due to a recession of the emerging markets.
Under these circumstances, the Chiyoda Group will do its best to respond to all the requirements of our stakeholders and the trends of the times based on our corporate philosophy.

We believe that the Chiyoda Group’s corporate social responsibility is to contribute to the realization of a better society by resolving through our engineering capabilities global challenges such as human rights, poverty, environmental issues, and shortages of natural resources.

A Reliable Company as our Ultimate Goal

We are dedicated to respecting the human rights of all people and creating a corporate culture where the diversity, individuality and character of all our employees are respected. We are trying to create a supportive environment for employees to fully show their full potential in the workplace regardless of gender, nationality, age or religion.
As a part of this promotion of diversity, to ensure the further optimization of the Group’s activities, we established the Action Plan for Promotion of active Female Participation in April 2016.

For the purpose of sustainable growth and enhancement of the corporate value of the Chiyoda Group in the mid- to-long term, we established the Chiyoda Corporation Corporate Governance Policy in October 2015, which strengthened the Group's basic views and guidelines with regard to corporate governance.

Chiyoda Corporation has also transitioned to being a company with a newly established Audit and Supervisory Committee consisting of three directors (including two independent officers). The Group will continue to actively secure the soundness and transparency of its corporate management through our Governance Policy and corporate structure.
While the Chiyoda Group has been supporting its employees' participation in social activities, because society is the basis of our existence. CSR promotion staff members have regularly visited the Tohoku areas devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake to support to revival of these areas. In addition, the Chiyoda Group made donations to four local non-profit organizations in the fifth year after the disaster. Furthermore, donations for the victims of the Kumamoto Earthquake in the Kyushu area were solicited in the Group in April 2016.

We have always tried to maintain close communication with all our stakeholders and have thoroughly complied with domestic and international laws and regulations, information security rules, corruption and harassment prevention, and respect for human rights. We have also continuously supported and will continue to support the spirit of the United Nations Global Compact (*UNGC), which we signed in 2012 and will make every effort to realize the spirit of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which embodies our business ideals. We will continue to proactively engage in CSR activities with the aim of being a reliable company.

ONE TEAM Spirit - Enhancing Corporate Value


Based on our ONE TEAM Spirit which is shared by our stakeholders, the Chiyoda Group pledges to contribute to realization of a better society through our business activities with cutting-edge technology. We believe we can increase our corporate value and earn the trust and understanding of all our stakeholders.
