Our Efforts to Realize a More Sustainable Society
As we lead businesses through technology, we believe it is our responsibility to think ahead to the future of global environment which lays the foundation for sustainable and continued growth.
Based on our management philosophy of “Innovation from Japan to the world,” we have established a “5DNA” code of conduct as well as Simplex Philosophy to define our core values, and we are committed to offering “meaningful and rewarding work” by focusing on human resources as they are our source of continuous innovation and abundant creativity.
Through our business activities, Simplex Group confronts the issues that must be dealt with to realize a sustainable society and aims to achieve the kind of sustainable development that grows together with the global environment and society.
As a member of a society that operates in a global environment, we believe that addressing climate change and other environmental issues is vital.
We recognize the need to reduce the environmental impact of our business activities and are proactively working to address environmental issues and collaborate with other companies that aim to realize a sustainable society.
Simplex Group has its offices in office buildings that take proactive and cutting-edge approaches to environmental issues. By proactively selecting sustainable business environments, we are engaging in responsible energy management.

For our internal systems, we actively use cloud servers, which are energy-efficient and help to reduce the burden on the global environment. Even in our client systems, we have developed support services for companies that choose to make use of the most advanced cloud computing. Since 2020, we have also participated in the “FISC＊1-compliant APN＊2 Consortium” by Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leading cloud server provider, with the aim of facilitating FISC compliance and promoting the use of AWS by financial institutions.

The Simplex Group is integrating a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to ensure that the systems and services we provide are not susceptible to prolonged interruptions. We are dedicated to taking the measures necessary to safeguard our valuable information assets from disruptions and disasters, and to ensure the prompt resumption of business activities.
In order to maintain our status as a group of sustainable professionals with extensive expertise both in business and technology, we place the utmost importance on our human resources.
We believe that the most important factor in our ability to continue creating innovation for society is to maintain positive relationships with talented people over the long term.
Accordingly, our key focuses are on hiring and training people with great potential as businesspersons regardless of their gender, age, nationality or disability status, and also on providing a working environment where each person can realize their full potential.
Since our inception, Simplex Group has done everything we can to support those who are interested, motivated, and passionate for self-fulfillment in the areas where the company takes on challenges, with no discrimination or categorization whatsoever. We are committed to fostering a corporate culture that enables “meaningful and rewarding work,” and where a diverse range of human resources can work together, have a distinct sense of ownership, and stretch their potential to the fullest.

For a company to achieve sustainable growth, it is important that its employees are in a state where they can demonstrate their great potential at all times―in other words, they need to be healthy both physically and mentally.

Systemic Risk Management
Given the fact that financial institutions are our major clients, we believe that having measures against systemic risks is extremely important. Not only have we built a solid infrastructure that includes robust servers, we also follow guidelines of the Financial Services Agency in order to manage and prepare for financial systemic risks.
Since our inception, we have consistently engaged in business with an advanced awareness of information security and accumulated extensive expertise and experience in this area. For our internal systems, we have adopted Microsoft 365 E5 security to provide comprehensive protection against the leakage of confidential information. Some solutions are validated under an Information Security Management System (ISMS), and we also regularly improve the awareness on and knowledge of security through measures such as monthly trainings for all employees as well as annual exams.
