Sustainability Initiatives

1. Sustainability Policy

With the aim of realizing the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) adopted by the United Nations in September 2015, the Group will support the world's most advanced technologies on a global scale with its unique and superior products, and strive for sustainable development as an innovative, development-driven company. At the same time, the Group will earnestly address environmental and human rights issues in order to contribute to a sustainable society with ESG (environmental, social and governance) in mind.

We will build a safe and rewarding work environment, promote the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) in harmony with nature, reduce the emission of environmentally hazardous substances, promote the reduction of industrial waste and the effective use of resources, increase our corporate value through activities aimed at solving social issues, and contribute to the creation of a prosperous society.

2. Sustainability Promotion System

The Group has placed sustainability at the core of its management policy, and has established the Sustainability Promotion Committee, chaired by the President, to promote sustainability. We will work on individual sustainability issues in cooperation with the Compliance and Risk Management Committee, also chaired by the President, and the RC Promotion Council. In particular, we have established the Global Environment Sectional Meeting under the Sustainability Promotion Committee to address important themes such as climate change and CO2 reduction. In addition, the sustainability policy and the status of initiatives will be regularly discussed at the Board of Directors meetings and incorporated into the Medium-Term Management Plan and annual plan.
