Editorial Policy

The JSR Group's corporate social responsibility (CSR) is to act with integrity as a good corporate citizen and carry out initiatives to meet the expectations of society.
We publish our CSR reports to inform all stakeholders of JSR Group policies and initiatives with a view to a sustainable society.
In the CSR Report 2012, we present specific examples of the JSR Group's current efforts and also our direction from here on out. Containing a dialogue with an expert from outside the company, this report presents specific examples of the direction that the JSR Group is aiming for and the initiatives that the Group is currently carrying out. In compliance with our Management Policies, our activities are reported according to our "Responsibility to Our Stakeholders."
A third-party opinion and an independent review regarding our activities and report are provided (with the opinion available both in the printed version and on our website, and with the review only on the website).
