CSR Report 2014

Editorial Policy

The JSR Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy is to act with integrity as a good corporate citizen in a manner that at all times meets the expectations of stakeholders. Fulfilling our CSR is a critical management priority. We publish our CSR reports to inform all stakeholders of JSR Group policies and initiatives with a view to a sustainable society.
The CSR Report 2014 clearly describes how our Corporate Mission is related to CSR through our unique approach to creating a sustainable global environment and society, while presenting details on our products that open up new frontiers in power conservation with materials innovation. The report also includes a dialogue between external experts and our executives, discussing what we as a chemical manufacturer are expected to do for the environment and what challenges may arise in the future. Our activities are reported in tables after comparing targets and actual results for each action item.
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 2014 Format

The JSR Group's CSR Report 2014 is available both in printed and online versions.
