Basic Management Policy / Various Policy

Basic Management Policy

To understand and embrace the corporate philosophies and ethics between all employees, the basic management policy is created which encompasses three key areas - "Principles", "Mission" and "Core Values."

Internal systems to promote CSR and the identification of key challenges

In fiscal 2015, we set up the CSR Promotion Department and the CSR Promotion Committee composed of managers at the department head level. We also examined the materiality of key CSR challenges for facilitating social development and achieving richer living conditions for people, factoring in international guidelines and industry issues, as well as opinions that mentioned our efforts and activities in the questionnaire of our previous reports and feedbacks of external ESG (Environment/ Social/ Governance) related evaluation.

We first studied the Company's risks and opportunities, and then compared them with the Company's management strategies and the manner in which they are implemented, clarifying the materiality matrix on respective challenges.(Please refer our latest materiality matrix as follows) After we examined them with the management team, we concluded that as a corporation seeking to become a "Social Values Creating Company,"we should create and offer new social values in our businesses by pursuing the following ideas in line with "Principles" –"Sustainable Growth,""Respect for Human Dignity" and "Implementation of Corporate Ethics" – that underlies the "Core Values". We positioned these efforts as the top priority CSR issues of the Company. Based on this positioning, we discussed how best to address CSR challenges. We set goals and promote measures in the FY2018 Mid-Term Management Plan, the mid-term management plan for the period running from fiscal 2017 until fiscal 2019.
