TOKYO, Dec. 6, 2019: Azbil Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange Code: 6845) announced that it has revised the azbil Group Guiding Principles, established in 1993, and updated the azbil Group Code of Conduct, established in 2000, to guide the behavior required to further put the Group's philosophy into practice.

The azbil Group Guiding Principles act as guideposts to steer corporate behavior for the purpose of realizing the Group philosophy.

Through the pursuit of that philosophy, the azbil Group will continue forging ahead as a unified corporate organization able to contribute to the development of a sustainable society by creating new levels of value in partnership with customers at their sites and helping solve various issues.
The entire azbil Group is unified in further improving enterprise value through the revised azbil Group Guiding Principles and Code of Conduct.
