The Dentsu Group Code of Conduct, basic to our CSR activities, is based on seven key areas of Dentsu CSR activities: corporate governance, respect for human rights, ensuring a safe and civilized working environment, environmental protection, fair business practices, addressing consumer issues, and contributing to the community.
While strictly observing the laws, regulations, and social norms of each country, the code outlines the conduct that all managers and employees in the Dentsu Group must comply with to fulfill their social responsibilities.
All the following points regarding the code and governance may be found at https://www.group.dentsu.com/en/about-us/governance/codeofconduct.html.
