The corporate behavior of the AGC Group is based in its relations, not only with customers, but with all stakeholders, including shareholders, investors, business partners, governments, NPOs/NGOs, local communities, and employees and their families.
To that end, in order to facilitate stakeholder expectations and trust, the Group promotes bilateral communication, in part by establishing various opportunities to utilize comments received from its stakeholders in its management plans.
In addition, in order to accurately transmit Group information globally, the AGC Group has established the Group Communication Guidelines, and has set up a system of collaboration between the public relations divisions of Group companies in Asia including Japan, Europe and North America, as well as rules regarding the transmission and receipt of information both within and outside the Group. With regard to the timely disclosure of company information, a system has been established through which supervisors nominated from each In-house Company/SBU and major Group companies obtain and release information through the Corporate Communications and IR Office. In addition, negative information is also appropriately disclosed on its website and via the media.
