Editorial Policy

The JSR Group Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the criteria by which our business activities are evaluated as we progress towards actualization of the "Materials Innovation" corporate mission. Fulfilling our CSR is, therefore, a critical management priority.
This report serves to communicate with our stakeholders regarding the JSR Group policies and initiatives we have set in motion toward a sustainable society.
The FY2015 Report clarifies the E2 InitiativeTM, which represents our approach, corporate mission, and key business activities to develop a sustainable global environment. The report also clarifies CSR priority issues and introduces some of our current initiatives to resolve these priority issues. We also describe the process used to identify the priority issues.
