Extraction of issues
We identified approximately environmental and social issues related to our business activities, making reference to international guidelines such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Guidelines, the United Nations Global Compact, and ISO 26000, as well as the SDGs and evaluation points used by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) evaluation organizations.
Internal survey and identification of materiality candidates
We conducted a global employee survey to confirm consistency and appropriateness with each region’s business and to quantitatively evaluate the level of importance on two axes: “stakeholders” and “us.”
Internal discussion and decision
The Management Committee, Global Strategy Review Committee, and the Board of Directors discuss the appropriateness and conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the material issues and their prioritization, and create a materiality matrix.
Identified with Board approval.
