Sony strives to comply with all applicable laws, regulations and internal policies and to conduct its business activities in an honest and ethical manner. As a part of this effort, Sony personnel strongly oppose anti-social forces (i.e., organized crime) that threaten to disrupt the order and safety of our community and endeavor to prevent or eliminate any relationship with anti-social forces.
Sony's frequent messaging and ongoing training of all its personnel on the Sony Group Code of Conduct help ensure that its corporate ethics are understood and observed throughout the Sony Group. In addition, Sony maintains strict anti-money laundering policies, supplemented by anti-money laundering "Know Your Customer" procedures and training. These policies and measures, along with Sony's internal hotline system to encourage its personnel to report concerns or raise questions about possible violations of laws, regulations and internal policies, should help prevent or eliminate relationships with anti-social forces.
