We have established the Heiwa Real Estate Group Code of Conduct to instill a compliance mindset in all employees. We also organize regular compliance training.
To further promote compliance consciousness, we conduct regular company-wide compliance and information security checks and inform employees of the results.
To ensure that compliance issues are addressed quickly, we operate a group-wide whistleblower hotline that all employees, including those of group companies, can use to report malpractice.
As part of our group-wide internal controls, we require our subsidiaries to observe the Risk Management Guidelines so as to ensure a consistent risk management framework throughout the group. We have a risk management committee chaired by
the Representative Director (the committee met four times this year). In accordance with the Risk Management Guidelines, the committee assesses harmful incidents, hazards, and near misses, and discusses measures to prevent recurrence.
Before a potential property transaction is discussed by the Board of Directors, the Investment Risk Working Group analyzes the risks associated with buying or selling the property in question and reports its findings to the Managing Officers’ Meeting.
To minimize the risk of an emergency disrupting business, we have established a business continuity plan and a manual based on this plan.
