Commitment to international society
With SMK, more than 60% of total production activities are made outside Japan. Ethnic groups, languages, history and culture are all different and no same commercial practice and senses of value are shared among production locations.
As a company active abroad, we at SMK must fulfill social responsibilities such as complying with laws, protecting the environment, respecting human rights, and providing an appropriate working environment in the said country.
In addition, before employees leave for a new post at an overseas office, SMK provides education on that country's people, religion, culture and customs to ensure smooth cooperation with local workers. SMK also gives guidance on and monitors whether actions contrary to social responsibilities in relation to local trade partners and associated companies have been taken.
