Through the practice of CSR, we seek to embody our company's philosophy. We believe that to rise the general level of CSR activities means not only to improve our ability, but also to approach our vision.
Our company is positioned on two wheels, one is CSR as a social organization, and the other is CSR by each single employee to promote our CSR activities.
Our company bases its management's core on CSR, and for us its promotion following our business activities is something we regard as most important.
Our company's midterm plan represents our vision for the future, which basically requires setting policies and implementation plans to achieve it.
When presenting the vision of our midterm plan, we set clear midterm plan targets, looking not only at our business challenges but also at CSR focus points.
We take action with the aim of achieving these targets, and CSR activities are developed in the center of the management cycle through which the results of our achievements are evaluated.
CSR focus points included in the achievement of our midterm plan targets are linked to our responses to social demands and also promote the further application of our company's corporate philosophy.
