Sustainability Promotion System
In our corporate brand promise, we have declared our intention to be a development-oriented company that contributes to the creation of a prosperous society capable of sustained growth. By tackling social issues through our pursuit of business, we have been working to create the values held in common by our company and society at large, and to achieve sustained growth in tandem. We will continue to focus on sustainability, including such aspects as the SDGs and ESG, as an important theme that informs our management, and work on related initiatives.
In December 2021, the Group established the Sustainability/CSR Committee, as a non-statutory committee under the Board of Directors to control the risks surrounding the Company, to prevent its corporate value from being impaired, and to seize opportunities for further growth.
The committee, which comprises the Representative Director,four non-executive Directors, and the Chief Corporate Planning Officer, who serves as chair, discusses important matters related to sustainability, risk management, responses to compliance, management of corprate information disclosures, responses to the whistleblowing system/ disciplinary actions, etc., and makes recommendations and reports to the Board of Directors, as necessary.
Additionally, in January 2022, Sustainability Conference was newly established as a subordinate organization to the Sustainability/CSR Committee to oversee the executive bodies.To flexibly and promptly respond to sustainability-related matters, the conference comprises an Corporate Officer serving as an advisor and the chair of the Sustainability/CSR Committee, led by an elected general manager. It discusses the sustainability of the entire Group, as well as shares ESG information within the Company, and periodically reports on the details of the discussions to the Sustainability/CSR Committee. For each important theme requiring priority implementation, a working team is established to carry out focused discussions.
