Corporate Sustainability

Corporate Social Responsibility

UK-NSI, as part of the global group, Nippon Seiki of Japan, has a responsibility to have the highest level of integrity in the way it conducts business. We need to ensure that all UK-NSI employees have a clear understanding of how the company expects them to behave.

The way we conduct business is based upon a set of common values; integrity, honesty, fairness and transparency with which we aim to secure the confidence of our shareholders, via the transparency of decision-making, supervision and accountability for such decisions. Transparency means that disclosures should not be limited to the financial results, but also to foreseeable risk factors. It is our belief that transparency and openness are key to good corporate decision-making.
