The Materiality Definition Process

We extracted issues based on their degree of impact, both for the Group’s stakeholders and for the Group.
When defining these issues, we reflected the opinions of outside experts and outside directors, as well as department heads and people in charge of business units.
We then grouped the material issues according to four themes, clarifying their content. At the same time, we set key performance indicators (KPIs) and targets for each theme. Through such initiatives, we aim to achieve sustainable growth.

  • STEP 1: Ascertaining the Issues

    Based on international guidelines and principles, we extract issues, taking into account social issues and stakeholders’ requests.

  • STEP 2: Ordering the Issues

    We select and add industry- or Group-specific issues.

  • STEP 3: Defining the Issues

    Following discussions among outside experts, outside directors, department heads and people in charge of business units, the issues are deliberated and approved by the Board of Directors.

Links with SDGs

We support the SDGs philosophy of solving social issues affecting the entire human race with not just governmental participation, but also participation by individuals and companies, and we also plan to actively contribute. In particular, we aim to contribute to the sustainable development of mankind through education for people, correction of inequality, and technological innovation.
