Kyocera's core values are reflected in the Corporate Motto, Management Rationale and
Management Philosophy that our founders adopted shortly after establishing Kyocera in
1959. While trends may come and go, these core values ensure a stable corporate culture
consistent with the ideals that the Ten Principles represent.

Corporate Motto:

Respect the Divine and Love People.

Preserve the spirit to work fairly and honorably, respecting people, our work, our
company and our global community.

Management Rationale:

To provide opportunities for the material and intellectual growth of all our employees,
and through our joint effort, contribute to the advancement of society and humankind.

Management Philosophy:

To coexist harmoniously with nature and society. "Harmonious Coexistence" is the
underlying foundation of all our business activities as we work to create a world of
abundance and peace.

These principles are woven throughout Kyocera's Corporate Philosophy and Code of
Conduct, which all Kyocera employees are expected to know and uphold. Training on
the content and application of the Code is mandatory, and all employees must
periodically acknowledge that they have read it and agree to comply with it. Kyocera has
not audited its manufacturing suppliers to evaluate compliance with company standards
regarding slavery and human trafficking in company supply chains, or sought third-party
verifications. However, Kyocera's standard contractual terms and conditions require each
supplier to comply with all laws and regulations, which include laws against slavery and
human trafficking.

Please refer to this site for updates to Kyocera policies and practices that may be covered
under the Act.
