At Hitachi Energy, integrity begins with leadership, responsibility and accountability. The tone from the top is clear: we are committed to integrity and we walk away from non-compliant business. Recurring integrity messages from our CEO and other senior leaders in videos, articles and letters, serve to reinforce our commitment to doing business without breaking the rules.
But integrity leadership does not stop at the top. Our integrity program relies on local management to lead by example. All local business unit managers have to regularly lead discussions about integrity issues to ensure that the ethics message comes from the same person that sets the business targets: integrity is the business of the business.
With support from top leadership, local leadership, committed integrity resources, and partner resources (like Human Resources and Sustainability Affairs) throughout the company, we are able to foster a strong and sincere culture of integrity.
