CSR Policy and Plan

Strengthening Initiatives for Realizing the "Vision"

We revised the CSR policy and established new mid-term goals in FY2014 to strengthen CSR activities through business activities. While formulating the mid-term goals, we reviewed the activity achievements and progress made so far. Also, we compiled the midterm goals according to 4 areas in collaboration with the relevant departments, based on the risk assessment of business entities within and outside Japan and stakeholder questionnaire results. In this plan, "Vision for 2020" is positioned as the mid-term goal, and the issues to be addressed on priority for the vision are positioned as focus measures, and initiatives and goals of a single fiscal year are positioned as the activity plan towards its realization. These initiatives will start along with the first fiscal year of the new mid-term plan of 2015.
