Under the Corporate Mission of creating value through material innovation for the enrichment of society, people and the environment, the JSR Group aims to build and maintain good relations with all of our stakeholders and become an indispensable corporate citizen. We intend to resolve key social issues by integrating management and CSR as well as demonstrating our corporate mission with actual results.
In FY2016, we identified the priority CSR issues for the first time and focused our initiatives on the identified four priority issues. In addition, we aimed to improve the level of our CSR by increasing the transparency and validity of the identification process of the priority issues. In doing so, we have gathered opinions from various stakeholders and held dialogues with experts.
In this report, we aim to communicate our CSR activities in FY2016 to the all stakeholders based on the view organized through the dialogues.
In the online version, activities are communicated with a focus on the four priority issues of Safety and Disaster Prevention, Environmental Impact and Resource Reduction, and Climate Change Countermeasures, Sustainable Society where People Can Enjoy Health and Longevity, and Communication with Stakeholders to provide an overall view. Details including data are reported. The printed version is focuses on highlights of the activities of FY2016 with easy-to-understand descriptions.
