Sustainability Management Promotion System

The Sustainability Committee has been set up as a committee within the Board to bolster sustainability management throughout the Group. This committee deliberates on significant policies and specific measures concerning sustainability challenges, enhancing the effectiveness of our initiatives.
Moreover, under the umbrella of the Management Committee, we have instituted various committees, such as the Sustainability Promotion Committee and the Personnel Committee, to discuss crucial matters related to sustainability, ensuring discussions are both timely and comprehensive.
To centralize responses to sustainability challenges, in April 2022, the Group founded the Sustainability Division (Integrated). Additionally, the chief of this division was appointed as the Company’s Chief Sustainability Officer (CSuO), amplifying our efforts to tackle these challenges.
