Haseko Group's Sustainability Management

We at the Haseko Group adopt a long-term perspective as we aim to address the social issues surrounding our daily lives through business operations.

As a corporate group for housing to create great living, we will promote CSR initiatives based on our CSR vision to fulfill our corporate philosophy and contribute to a sustainable society.

Message from the Officer in Charge of Sustainability Promotion

取締役執行役員 経営管理部門サステナビリティ推進担当兼グループシニア事業管掌 吉村直子

Society’s challenges surrounding housing and living are changing with the times. Under this circumstances, in order to achieve our corporate philosophy, “To contribute to society by creating an optimal environment for cities and people,” we at the Haseko Group are operating various businesses relating to housing and living. Society’s challenges surrounding housing and living are changing with the times. Based on my many years of experience in research in the field of housing for the elderly, I believe that resolving issues over a rapidly aging and declining population will be one of the important social roles expected of the Haseko Group. My hope is to be able to provide better products and services by digging deep to discover sustainable designs to support housing and living for an era where 100-year human lifespans are common. Utilizing my concurrent posts as operating officer responsible for sustainability promotion and director, I aim to establish a system that enables the Board of Directors to achieve thorough sustainability management. Going forward, I will fulfil my responsibilities so that the Company can conduct corporate activities that meet society’s demands and elevate management that is conscious of contributing to a society that adopts cyclical resource use.

Society is showing heightened interest in sustainability even in areas of business operations that do not directly involve products and services. In line with changes to the social climate, in May 2023, we revised the details of materiality for the second time and identified the four most material issues of (1) human capital (diversity & inclusion, human resources development), (2) responding to climate change, (3) respect of human rights, and (4) supply chain management. We have formulated and disclosed policies and guidelines for these four issues. That said, initiatives are at an early stage, and I believe further work in promoting these as foundations of our business activities is necessary. In particular, I plan to engage more directly with diversity & inclusion promotion initiatives as the Company’s first internally-promoted female Director.

Finally, I believe there is still room for improvement in regards to whether we are clearly demonstrating the connection between engaging in CSR activities and raising long-term corporate value, and we will address this in order to further heighten the understanding and support of our stakeholders regarding sustainable management of the Company. Sustainability initiatives are the compass that will guide us along the path we must take. The Haseko Group will continue to work diligently while pursuing deeper engagement with all our stakeholders.

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.

Amidst accumulating environmental and social issues, including climate change, energy problems, aging society with fewer children, poverty, and human rights issues, corporations have a growing responsibility to solve such issues. The Haseko Group has identified priority issues to be addressed as materiality (material issues) from the perspective of business and social axes, and has incorporated these issues into our guidelines for promoting CSR. After having first identified the details of materiality in 2017, we subsequently revised these details in April, 2020 and again in May, 2023. We will conduct periodic reviews as necessary from a perspective of consistency with the management policy and social conditions.

Materiality Identification Process

Haseko Group’s Materiality

All of the materiality topics identified have been incorporated as components of our four main CSR themes.

CSR Action Plan

As a specific initiative for implementing sustainability, we have established the Haseko Group CSR Action Plan and are making progress with its implementation. The CSR Action Plan is based on the four main CSR themes, and consists of initiative items to move toward the “Vision for 2037 (100th anniversary)” and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how much progress has been made. The Action Plan covers the business activities of the entire Haseko Group and is reviewed and improved each fiscal year.

With the medium-term business plan (Plan NS) formulated in February 2020, we reviewed the Action Plan in order to further reinforce the link between our sustainability and management policy.
