Reasons for being Priority Issues
With the goal of sharing our joy with all people related to our business activities (stakeholders) and contributing to the enrichment of society, we have positioned resolving social issues through dialogue and collaboration as well as contributing to the development of local communities as issues that should be addressed with priority.
It is our opinion that overcoming environmental problems, securing human resources, and the stable growth of local economies are indispensable for our continued growth into the future.
Therefore, we will create common values with local communities by contributing to environmental protection to the extent that our business activities impact the environment, supporting raising next-generation children, and the growth of local communities by the Group’s resources and collaboration with stakeholders based on various forms of communication.
At production facilities that are expected to have a particularly significant impact on the environment as the scale of our business grows, we will make use of a precautionary approach to respond to the risk that our impact on biodiversity in surrounding areas will increase.
