Participating in External Initiatives

Commitment to External Initiatives

UN Global Compact

UN Global Compact

In October 2004, Olympus joined the UN Global Compact, agreeing to uphold its 10 principles.
The Global Compact (GC) is a voluntary initiative to create a global framework within which companies can contribute to good corporate citizenship and sustainable growth through responsible and creative leadership. The 10 principles of the Global Compact are incorporated into our Corporate Conduct Charter and related policies, and are reflected in our business activities.
Olympus has supported initiatives on climate change as a signatory to the Global Compact "Caring for Climate" since 2009, and announced its support for Global Compact Network Japan's "Tokyo Principles for Strengthening Anti-Corruption Initiatives" in April 2018. Also, we participate in the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Subcommittee of Global Compact Network Japan.
