JSR Issues CSR Report 2017 

Tokyo, Japan, October 2, 2017 - JSR Corporation (President: Mitsunobu Koshiba) is pleased to announce that we have issued JSR Group's CSR Report 2017, a summary of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts promoted in FY 2016 (April 2016 - March 2017). Covering 51 JSR Group companies consisting of JSR's domestic and overseas Group companies, the new CSR report is available both in highlight version (printed version) and online version.

At the start of FY2017, which is the initial fiscal year of our mid-term business plan "JSR20i9," we arranged our approach to our priority CSR issues that we had identified into three priority issues devised from the viewpoint of relevance to society. They are "Social Issues that JSR Group Can Help Resolve," "Social Issues Attributable to JSR Group's Corporate Activity," and "Basic Issues in JSR Group's Corporate Activity."
In this report, we aim to communicate our CSR activities in FY2016 to all stakeholders in an easily comprehensible way that follows the priority issues. Additionally, we have reworked our traditional "Top Message" into a dialogue between JSR's top and a CSR expert to convey our approach to sustainable medium- and long-term growth for JSR Group.

The online version gives a detailed report with data that primarily focuses on our initiatives targeting the three priority issues, with the aim being to give readers an overall picture of our CSR initiatives. As for the printed version, this fiscal year we are renaming this version the "highlight version" And it provides highlights of our activities in FY2016.

To guarantee the report's reliability, as usual we underwent an independent review by the Japan Responsible Care Council, and also received a third-party opinion from an outside expert as an objective assessment of the Group's efforts.

The online version is available in the CSR section of our website.
