Initiatives for Material Issues - Targets and Performance

In order to improve while objectively assessing CSR activities, we have established key performance indicators (KPI) and target for each material CSR issue. For non-priority issues, we have adopted an assessment indicator that helps us monitor the results of the implementation of initiatives. Figures marked with “” are those that have been assured by an independent assurance provider.
This year, we received assurance from an independent assurance provider concerning the following eight items: power and gas consumption, CO2 emissions (Scope1, Scope2) and CO2 emissions intensity, number of greening projects, waste disposal, water usage, employment ratio of the disabled, usage rate of paid leave, and percentage of employees who received medical checkups.
We will make efforts for constant improvement using the PDCA Cycle, while disclosing data on the progress of our CSR activities to the stakeholders.
