About Basic Sustainability Policy
In April 2000, Stanley Electric Co., Ltd. formulated a basic philosophy for the Stanley Group, known as the "Stanley Group Vision."
This Vision established the basic set of values, the significance of existence in society as well as the everlasting mission for the Stanley Group worldwide, and based on the concept of creating a sustainable society whose importance is widely recognized today.
Ever since its foundation, Stanley Electric has had a management philosophy that serves as the foundation of the "Stanley's Four Values" paying special attention to customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders. After WW2, we put this philosophy into practice by positioning it as the corporate vision.
The Stanley Group Vision succeeds this commitment. In realizing the vision, it is essential to collaborate and cooperate with many stakeholders while sharing values, and by sharing the vision within the entire Group we fully exploit the total power of the Group, addressing the challenge of creating a sustainable society through our business activities.
Furthermore, to put the Guidelines for Action defined in the Stanley Group Vision into practice properly, we established the Stanley Group's Code of Conduct. We are making every effort to contribute to further development of society through our business activities by observing laws, regulations and social norms explicitly stated in this Code of Conduct, promoting a healthy workplace environment, conducting business activities that contribute to society, caring for people and nature and act under the premises of communication and co-existence with society
Stanley's sustainability framework is as follows.
