Honda Code of Conduct
In order to earn the trust of customers and society and grow sustainably, companies must not only comply with laws and regulations but go beyond those legal structures by practicing ethical corporate conduct.
In light of the rising importance of compliance for Honda as it expands business operations globally, the Honda Conduct Guidelines were revised on April 1 2016, outlining the behaviors to be practiced by people working at Honda around the world. The guidelines were renamed the Honda Code of Conduct at the same time.
The Company works to instill the Honda Code of Conduct in each and every associate through actions such as the distribution of leaflets, posting of information on its intranet and through training. Each of Honda’s departments and subsidiaries regularly checks the status of activities to ensure awareness of the Code, and, reports to the Compliance Committee.
Recognizing this, in 2003 Honda formulated the Honda Conduct Guidelines for the Honda Group, which have been shared throughout the Group, including subsidiaries in Japan and overseas.
