Important Societal Issues (Materiality Issues)To achieve sustainable growth together with society, Yamaha Motor intends to help resolve a variety of societal issues in uniquely Yamaha ways.In formulating its Long-Term Vision and Medium-Term Management Plan, the Company identified important societal issues that it can help resolve by leveraging its strengths and has incorporated initiatives to resolve these issues into the Medium-Term Management Plan.STEPWe look at the wide range of societal issues referenced in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Risks Report, and select those that will have the greatest impact on Yamaha Motor’s use and procurement of management resources, and for which the resolution will make the greatest contribution to the enhancement of corporate value. We also evaluate the importance of societal issues from the perspective of stakeholders, referencing the valuations of ESG rating institutions.1SortSTEPThrough consultation with operating divisions, functional divisions, and corporate divi-sions, 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.2CategorizeSTEPAll of the Company’s officers deliberate societal issues aggre-gated and categorized in Step 2 at the Management Committee and the Board of Directors’ meetings, and designate “impor-tant societal issues” that should be addressed Companywide using the Company’s strengths, corporate philosophy, and unique capabilities.3DesignateSTEPInitiatives to resolve the identi-fied important societal issues have been incorporated into the Medium-Term Management Plan.
