CSR Report 2013

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 2013, we provide an overview of how the JSR Group’s business activities interact with society in feature articles, with particular focus on the details of strategic businesses. The report also features a dialogue between experts from outside the company and our executives, who discuss the JSR Group’s CSR activities in general. Specific activities are reported for each of the stakeholders specified by one of our Management Policies—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).

The CSR Report 2013 Format

The JSR Group's CSR Report 2013 is available both in printed and online versions.


The printed version features CSR activities in the JSR Group that we would particularly like to communicate to our stakeholders. This version also provides the highlights of our previous fiscal year's activities.


The online version presents a comprehensive report on the JSR Group's CSR activities. In addition to the content provided in the printed version, the online version details specific initiatives regarding "Responsible Care" (the environment, health, and safety) and many other responsibilities for our stakeholders.
