Promoting compliance activities with the entire group
Promoting compliance activities
In our corporate group, the Office of General Administration (legal),acting as our compliance headquarters, oversees compliance promotion for the entire group with guidance from the Compliance Committee, which is chaired by our company president.
Every division in our company has established a "compliance promotion plan for their own division" that is based on the characteristics of their businesses. They are undertaking independent compliance promotion activities under the leadership of their division chiefs and others. Moreover, our group companies, led by their presidents, are also undertaking independent compliance promotion activities based on the characteristics and sizes of their businesses, as well as other actual conditions.
Compliance Consultation Desk
The Compliance Consultation Desk established by our company is available not only to employees of our group companies but also to our contractors. This system enables us to collect a wider range of risk information. We are working to create an improved environment offering a more approachable service that can accept anonymous consultations and that allocates female consultants, for example.
No serious violations have been confirmed from consultations with the Compliance Consultation Desk. The consultations tend to be related to issues such as harassment, workplace operations and labor conditions.
Information security initiatives
We believe that one duty of our company is to steadily advance information security efforts to ensure the safe and stable supply of power and to protect the customer information that we possess. While further strengthening countermeasures against cyber attacks, which have been growing in threat in recent years, we will continue promoting information security management based on PDCA cycles.
Information security promotion system for the entire group
In the promotion system of our company, the Managing Executive Officer in charge of the IT division fills the role of Chief Information Security Officer, and we deploy Information Security Managers who promote efforts in each workplace. In addition, our group companies are undertaking independent efforts based on the Kansai Electric Power Group Information Security Guidelines, which are the information security guidelines for the entire group. With this and other guidance and support from our company, we are raising the security level of the entire group.
