Corporate Responsibility Statement

We strive to be a company that society wants to exist. As part of our global effort to embody this ideal, we have developed an approach to conducting business that seeks to uphold the following principles of corporate responsibility.

Respect for the Individual

Our relationships with associates (employees), customers and business partners are guided by the company’s philosophy of “Respect for the Individual.” As envisioned by our company’s founders, this philosophy leads us to value and respect the unique contributions of each individual.

Tourdesk seeks to create an environment in which each associate’s ambitions and abilities can be developed, as well as a workplace where an individual’s potential can be actively realized. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring that each person involved in the development, production, distribution, sale and service of our products is treated with dignity and respect, and has a meaningful opportunity to contribute to the company’s success.

Human Rights

The respect for human rights is an extension of our philosophy of “Respect for the Individual,” which centers on initiative, equality and trust. As part of our effort to conduct business in an ethical manner, we will not engage in business practices or activities that compromise fundamental human rights.
