Key Issue8: Accurate and timely information disclosure and communication with stakeholders

Policy

The Group will use various opportunities to continue dialogues with stakeholders.

Information Disclosure

The Group believes the appropriate and timely disclosure of company information promotes of stakeholder understanding, and also leads to proper evaluations of the market.
We therefore implement fair and transparent information disclosure by posting information on the Company's website and publicizing it to stock exchanges and the news media. We also publish the Annual Report, financial statements and other reports for shareholders.

Participation in the Ministry of the Environment's Environmental Reporting Platform Development Pilot Project

The Company has participated in the Environmental Reporting Platform Development Pilot Project hosted by the Ministry of the Environment since 2013.
Following the global trend, it is expected that in Japan, too, ESG investments1 will expand in the future. Today, however, companies disclose non-financial information which provide materials for investment decisions, at their own discretion, so it is difficult for investors to obtain and compare information equally. In 2013, in order to improve this situation, the Ministry of the Environment led the world in building a system to disclose non-financial information, particularly environmental information, and began verification tests of the system. This system is expected to allow companies to disclose non-financial information in a format that enables investors to compare it with information from others and promote active dialogues between companies and investors and other stakeholders.
We hope that investors and many other stakeholders will inspect the information disclosed under this project and obtain a deeper understanding of our CSR initiatives.

  • 1 ESG investment
