Comments, opinions and suggestions will be considered as an opportunity for further development of this Code, and in order to better achieve our goal, the e-mail address has been activated.

All employees of the Ryoma Group must read and be familiar with the Code of Ethics.

Managing directors and other legal representatives of Group companies will sign a binding statement of conduct, so they will be the first to be informed of the Group’s policies.

It is the responsibility of the respective managers to ensure that individual employees have read and understood the policies adopted by the Group.

Recruitment, development and remuneration opportunities are based on individual merit and qualifications directly related to professional competence.

2.4 Discrimination

Ryoma respects the rights and cultural differences of each individual. It is the declared aim of the Ryoma Group not to discriminate against any employee, applicant or business partner on the basis of age, religion, gender, disability, nationality, origin, marital status or sexual orientation. Harassment of any kind, whether against employees or partners, will not be tolerated.

Although certain behaviours and working practices that violate this Code of Ethics may be tolerated in some countries, Ryoma expects Group employees to demonstrate the highest integrity and to comply with the principles of the Company’s policies and applied Guidelines.

2.5 Learning

The Group is committed to providing employees with the tools and training updates necessary for their specific tasks and to develop their professionalism.

2.6 Use of company assets and resources

Company resources must be used efficiently, economically and ecologically, to ensure respect for the environment and preserve the value of the asset itself. The use of company assets for private purposes is prohibited.

Ryoma saves energy and is committed to waste reduction, applying the same philosophy to everyone, including our business partners. The Group is committed to managing and reducing its environmental impact.

It also considers it fundamental to promote any action aimed at protecting human health and the environment through processes and products that aim to limit the significant environmental impacts generated in relation to the organisation’s objectives and context. It therefore considers the prevention of pollution, the conscious use of environmental resources and the consideration of all stakeholders as an integral part of its activities.

2.8 Health and safety risks

The Ryoma Group is committed to considering the safety and health of workers as a primary objective and an integral part of its business by acting in accordance with regulatory requirements.

The responsibility for health and safety management concerns the entire company organisation, from the Employer to each worker, according to his or her own attributions and competences.

One of the Group’s objectives is to prevent accidents, injuries and occupational diseases as far as possible.
