CSR Vision

Establishing the Medium-term Management Plan in November 2006, we also approved and resolved our "CSR Vision" as a basic stance in promoting our CSR activities at the Board of Directors meeting. The practice of Corporate Philosophy advocating the social contribution through business is inextricably linked with the promotion of CSR activities. Therefore, the CSR Vision was established, with the awareness that it is essential to affirm and clearly state the basic stance in order to formulate and execute the medium-term management plan.

Relationships between the Philosophical Frameworks and our CSR Vision

Our Corporate Philosophy is "Creating Amenity. Promoting Peace of Mind.," which means the reason why Hulic exists is to contribute to society through developing our business activities. Accordingly, achieving our Corporate Philosophy fulfills a social responsibility, and the CSR Vision (basic policy) and the Corporate Philosophy are two sides of the same coin. The Basic Stance which is derived from the Corporate Philosophy, the Basic Principles of Corporate Conduct which embodies our Basic Stance, and Our Code of Conduct, always have our CSR Vision as their basis.

The Relation between Management Strategy and CSR

We think of our management strategy and CSR as one. In the Medium-term Management Plan, we are attempting to raise the level of the CSR management system.

Establishment of the CSR Committee

Hulic has established a CSR Committee in order to combine and align its CSR-related initiatives with its business activities. It is essential for management personnel to be involved in boosting the level of CSR initiatives in the medium and long-term while striking a balance between CSR-related measures and business activities. Therefore, the CSR Committee is chaired by the President, consists of Senior Executive Managing Officers, the General Manager of the Business Planning and Management Department, the General Manager of the Real Estate Planning Department and the General Manager of the Property Development Department. The Committee is held annually in principle, and as needed. Company-wide CSR activities are performed in accordance with the basic policy decided by the CSR Committee. To be more specific, the Committee formulates various kinds of policies concerning Company-wide CSR activities and an annual CSR schedule, sets concrete numerical targets, and considers and deliberates diverse proposals made by employees, etc. Like this, in the Committee as a place to practically implement CSR management, there are a lot of active discussions.
Activities of the CSR Committee are reported to Board of Directors on a regular basis.

Activities of CSR Supporters

Approximately 20 employees are appointed from Hulic Group companies as CSR supporters. They are relieved by other members after completing a one-year term. The CSR Supporter Committee, where CSR supporters meet, discusses mainly CSR-related matters for the entire Company and determines the policy and details of CSR activities. They are also actively engaged in volunteer activities including flowerbed maintenance and sorting out used stamps collected from each group company for donation.
