In order to realize our management philosophy, we have established the “Mabuchi Motor Ethical Standard” not only to comply with the rules and regulations of each country, but also because we believe that carrying out activities in line with corporate ethics as deemed desirable by society is a major premise. We have concretely laid out social codes of conduct like laws and ordinances that all executives and employees should follow, and plan for them to penetrate and take root in the company.

Basic Policy

We conduct business activities in compliance with the laws and regulations, and in accordance with the social ethics, of each country and region in which we operate for the true realization of the management principle “contributing to international society and continuously expanding our contribution”.

  • All directors and employees of Mabuchi Group must place more priority on compliance with international rules and the laws and regulations of each country where the company is based, than on company’s profits and operations.
  • Any behavior against social ethics must be strictly avoided with due regard to our responsibilities to every stakeholder, including customers, shareholders and investors, and the community.
  • Any issue concerning laws and regulations or social ethics that requires special attention must be clearly stipulated by company policies and regulations and become familiar throughout the company. All directors and employees are required to sincerely observe those obligations.

Our System for Promoting Compliance

A director responsible for compliance at each Mabuchi Group base supervises the compliance activities of that base, with oversight provided by the director responsible for internal control at the main office in Japan. The base director takes the lead in strengthening internal control and promoting continuous, autonomous compliance locally. To address and improve any inadequacies related to compliance in the Mabuchi Group, the Internal Audit Department conducts both regular and non-scheduled audits at all Group bases. These are designed to verify adherence to compliance-related rules and procedures and to identify any ethical violations. Results are reported directly to top management.
Compliance education for employees at all bases around the world include study sessions and training programs focusing on laws, regulations, and social ethics.

Compliance System

Whistleblower System

We have set up the Ethical Standard Hotline in the company to allow all employees to directly inform or consult with the Internal Audit Department about compliance-related information under strict anonymity without using ordinary communication routes (senior managers or existing contact points of each division).
Mabuchi group is always striving to conduct honest and fair business with our suppliers and to build a relationship of trust with them. To address the current social situation, we extended the operational range of the Ethical Standard Hotline to some of our suppliers in addition to Mabuchi employees with a view to preventing problems in advance and strengthening the misconduct-prevention system.
We have also delivered a top management message promising that we will never allow those who have consulted with us to be treated disadvantageously because of their consultation, which is in accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act. In June 2022, in accordance with the revision of the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Company introduced a whistleblower reception service provided by an external organization to establish a whistleblower contact point independent of management and to strengthen the protection of those who seek advice.
