Corporate Compliance

One of our fundamental beliefs is that all business must be conducted with integrity.
Based on our corporate philosophy of “Going further together,” we actively work to foster trust within our workforce and ensure corporate compliance and transparency.

Hanwha Compliance Committee

Integrity has been a core Hanwha value since our inception. To better reflect this, we established the independent Hanwha Compliance Committee in 2018. The committee’s aim is to create a clearer and more ethical management culture.

Unconnected to our businesses, this committee is composed of Hanwha employees and outside experts who provide an objective perspective on our activities. The committee members evaluate our corporate activities and propose solutions for conflict-of-interest issues. The committee is also responsible for setting global compliance policies and educating our workforce to make sure we follow all necessary rules and regulations.

Hanwha Compliance Committee ’s Structure and Roles
  • Structure

    To maintain independence, objectivity, and fairness, three of the five Hanwha Compliance Committee members are external experts.
    The committee receives quarterly reports on major compliance issues so that it may deliberate and decide on the best courses of action.

  • Role

    The committee is responsible for establishing Hanwha’s global compliance policies.
    It also supports and reviews compliance implementation at each Hanwha business.

Hanwha Compliance Committee Duties
  • 01 Education
    The committee organizes training programs to develop a culture of corporate compliance among employees. Other training programs are designed to help strengthen compliance management at individual Hanwha businesses.
  • 02 Compliance Guideline Development
    The committee develops and distributes Hanwha’s global compliance guidelines, which are updated annually. These outline the rules and regulations that all Hanwha employees must follow. The committee also sets the direction for each Hanwha business’ compliance guidelines.
  • 03 Examining and Strengthening Hanwha’s Corporate Compliance
    To address any compliance risks that may arise, the compliance committee encourages proactive involvement: All employees are asked to examine their own actions and take part in activities to improve corporate compliance individually.
  • 04 Promoting Corporate Compliance
    In addition, the committee distributes messages to further promote Hanwha’s compliance culture. These messages cover timely topics to help employees understand the importance of following all laws and regulations that apply in their workplaces.
