Formulation of CSR Vision

Through discussions held in the working group consisting primarily of young and mid-level employees of Group companies, we deepened our common understanding of CSR initiatives and expressly described what we aim to be as a group in the form of CSR Vision. Discussions on the CSR Vision were carried out in consideration of the outcome of the identification of materiality performed at the same time.

Opinions from working group members
  • We formulated a CSR vision that takes into account the potential of new challenges while cherishing the traditional traits unique to Haseko.
  • Given that employees’ understanding of the significance of CSR and CSR through core businesses is still far from satisfactory, instilling them among employees will be a major task for the future.

Haseko Group’s Materiality

Materiality Identification Process

Identification of materiality (material issues) involved preparing a list of 74 materiality topics in consideration of global standards such as the GRI Standards and ISO26000 as well as Haseko Group’s business environment. This was followed by evaluation and weighting of the materiality topics based on their relevance with respect to the social axis (importance to stakeholders) and the business axis (importance to the Haseko Group).

The topics were finalized based on reviews conducted by officers after reflecting the opinions of working group members, resulting in the identification of 26 material issues.
