The aim of Hankook Tire is to establish company-wide ethical awareness for a transparent and healthy corporate culture where all stakeholders and employees can come together as a single entity.
Today, companies are required to maintain higher ethics as their businesses exert increasingly greater impacts on nations and local communities. For example, they are required to establish and execute management system meeting anticorruption regulations such as Bribery Act of the U.K., Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of the U.S., and Improper Solicitation and Graft Act of Korea. In response, Hankook Tire considers obtaining the ISO37001 certification (Anti-Bribery Management Systems).
