CTC CEO MESSAGE
IT for the PEOPLE
President & CEO
Society today is facing many issues, including the climate change, widening social disparities, and in Japan a declining birthrate and aging population. IT, which helps solve social issues, is evolving rapidly, and new challenges, including the need to bridge the digital divide, have begun to emerge.
Based on our mission, “Leveraging IT’s potential to change future for the Global Good,” this year CTC has defined new materialities (material issues) to enable its continued growth as a corporation that fulfills its responsibilities to society. CTC aims to help establish a sustainable society through its business by addressing three major issues: solving social issues through IT, cultivating human capital to support the future, and implementing responsible corporate activities.
We have developed a Medium-Term Management Plan, Beyond the Horizons: To the Future Ahead, for the three years from FY2021 to FY2023 based on the Group Philosophy and the new materialities. CTC will seek to achieve continued growth under the three basic policies described with the keywords Accelerate, Expand, and Upgrade. Accelerate is based mainly on supporting DX and the expansion of the co-creation business. Expand is aimed at the expansion of the 5G and cloud businesses, and Upgrade reflects CTC’s intent to develop human resources and reinforce its management base.
We established a new office and consolidated the offices of the CTC Group in the Tokyo area in June this year to strengthen the cooperation of Group companies, respond to new ways of working, and transform our offices in response to the arrival of the new normal created by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have started working on this new note. We wish to emphasize again our culture, which encourages people to take on challenges, as indicated in our slogan, “Challenging Tomorrow’s Changes.” We will continue to strive to create a society where many people are able to benefit from the digital technology and waza (unique skillset) that we make available to people.

CTC Group Policy on Fair Trade and Prevention Corruption
The CTC Group defines its mission as “Leveraging IT’s potential to change the future for the Global Good.” This mission can only be realized by attracting various stakeholders by our services, products, and technological capabilities, and cannot be realized through business processes that violate compliance. Furthermore, if we seek profit through unfair competition or bribery, it could cause immediate loss of the whole trust and expectation accumulated ever since. The “Fair Trade and Prevention of Corruption” in terms of compliance is already stated in the “CTC Group Code of Conduct.”. However, considering the recent globalization of business and trends in domestic and overseas laws and regulations, we hereby clearly announce this policy.
We, together with our business partners, will comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries and regions in which the CTC Group carries out its business, and will continue to do our utmost to promote fair trade and prevent corruption.
1. [Prohibition of acts that impede fair competition]
We will promote fair trade, and never engage in any conduct that impedes fair competition, such as coordinating orders or adjusting the price of services or products, etc. with competitors, whether in Japan or overseas.
2. [Prohibition of bribery]
For the purpose of preventing corruption, we will not provide, propose or promise any entertainment, gifts, or other facilities to public officials or persons in equivalent positions, or other business partners for the purpose of obtaining illegal benefits, whether in Japan or overseas. In addition, we will not cause our business partners to conduct such bribery.
3. [Establishment and Operation of Systems]
We will appropriately develop and operate a system of personnel, organization, and internal rules, necessary for ensuring the observance of the preceding two clauses, by understanding the risks of each CTC Group company.
4. [Monitoring and Revision]
We will monitor the system of personnel, organization, and internal rules in the preceding clause on a regular basis, including whether it is appropriately established and operated, and whether its function is effective. In addition, we will review and improve the system as necessary, in light of the status of risks or the revisions of laws and regulations.
5. [Full Dissemination]
We will implement this policy and ensure that this policy and the related efforts of each CTC Group company are continuously disseminated.
