Priority Issues (Materiality)

Print this page

Basic Philosophy

We improve corporate value through contributions working towards the realization of a sustainable society.
To achieve this, after accurately grasping social issues, we believe it is important to define priority issues (materiality) in each area of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance), and set medium- to long-term goals to work towards them.

The Process of Defining Priority Issues

Priority Issues

We have identified eight priority issues. In the future, the CSR and Sustainability Committee will confirm their progress and promote the initiatives.
