At Daihatsu, we regard risks as "obstacles to our Group's sustainable business activities," Consequently, we strive to identify risks in all our corporate functions, and either eliminate or minimize them as appropriate.
We define risks from a variety of viewpoints: their direct impact on profits, safeguarding the trust of our customers and other stakeholders, and compliance with laws and regulations.
At Daihatsu, various company-wide, cross-sectional committees and supervisory departments work to understand the safety, quality control and environmental risks that exist in each of our corporate functions. Where necessary, we manage these risks through the establishment of regulations and guidelines, and the creation and distribution of manuals.
In order to manage crises in an appropriate manner in the case of fires, accidents, scandals and other times of emergency, Daihatsu has defined the roles of every department and centralized all the relevant information at Countermeasure headquarters. This has enabled the company to strengthen its ability to respond to times of crisis.
Daihatsu strives to avoid or reduce risk where possible. To this end, the company has formulated its Business Continuity Plan (BCP), via which it aims both to minimize the impact of natural disasters and other risks on its management, and to enable the business to recover and continue at the earliest opportunity.
More specifically, Daihatsu has established a Company-Wide Disaster Management Committee, a cross-sectional organization in which all company departments participate.
The committee has established an employee code of conduct for times of large-scale disaster, formulated initial response procedures, drawn up a recovery procedure manual, and clarified the process from the initial onset of the disaster to full recovery. By firmly instilling these codes and procedures through training, Daihatsu aims to establish a corporate structure that is highly resilient to disasters.
Daihatsu recognizes that information security is a cornerstone of business continuity; as such, it ensures that management rules regarding confidential information, products and facilities are fully understood by its employees.
To this end, the company implements information security training for its employees when they join the company, and at other times.
Daihatsu has also established an “information security enhancement month.” The company strives to prevent information leaks by sharing the latest information regarding information leak risks, and thereby raising employee awareness of information security.
Through its business activities, Daihatsu has been entrusted with the personal information of its stakeholders, and recognizes this information to be critically important personal property. For this reason, we have established privacy policies to ensure the personal information we have been entrusted with is being managed in an appropriate manner.
As part of our personal information protection activities, when we entrust personal information to third parties, we make sure these third parties have undergone thorough checks and been carefully selected; we also make certain to exchange
