In accordance with the "Pioneer Group Charter for Corporate Operations" Pioneer has established the "Pioneer Group Code of Conduct" as a set of standards that must be observed by all corporate officers and employees of the Pioneer Group. These standards specify the basic requirements for responding sincerely and rapidly to stakeholders at all times, while maintaining impartial, fair and transparent relationships with them in all nations and regions where Pioneer conducts business operations.
Pioneer has established the "Business Ethics Hotline" in collaboration with an independent thirdparty institution as an internal reporting system for all directors and employees of the Pioneer Group in Japan and overseas.
Through these initiatives, Pioneer has established and operates a system for identifying in early stages and rapidly solving issues related to violations of its code of conduct throughout the Pioneer Group worldwide, while protecting informants, and for reducing the risk of possible unethical behavior. Furthermore, by publicly disclosing its code of conduct, Pioneer aims to work hand in hand with suppliers and other business partners to ensure that its activities are based on a strong awareness of its corporate social responsibilities.
