We also evaluate the importance of social issues from the perspective of stakeholders, referencing the valuations of ESG rating institutions.Categorize social issuesThrough consultation with operating divisions, functional divisions, and corporate divisions, the divisions clarify the relationships between the issues selected in Step 1 and each division’s policies and activities, and those that should be addressed Companywide are aggregated and categorized.Designate important social issuesAll of the Company’s officers deliberate social issues aggregated and categorized in Step 2 at the Management Committee and the Board of Directors meetings, and designate “important social issues” that should be addressed Companywide using the Company’s strengths, corporate philosophy, and unique capabilities.Incorporate into Medium-Term Management PlanInitiatives to resolve the identified important social issues have been incorporated into the Medium-Term Management Plan.
