In pursuit of our Group mission of "Changing our surroundings, improving our world", we aim to contribute to a sustainable society. This will be done by addressing environmental opportunities and fulfilling our Corporate social responsibilities through proactive actions.
We are fully committed to mitigating the social impact of climate change and the environmental burden by proactively addressing the reduction of greenhouse gases generated in the manufacturing process and providing products that contribute to energy conservation. We strive to make a significant contribution to societies and the environment.
The sustainability targets are set in light of the long-term strategic priorities of the Group. By managing the environmental impact of the activities, we will continue to work in harmony with our local communities and challenge ourselves to improve energy efficiency and resource management. We continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through improved utilization of our facilities and energy saving initiatives.
Health and safety of our employees, and of all our stakeholders, is fundamental to our business. The annual 'NSG Group Safety Day' clearly demonstrates this principle. Our Code of Ethics, a natural extension to the UN Global Compact, provides practical guidance on how we should conduct ourselves in our day-to-day business. The NSG Ethics and Compliance Hotline allows anyone, not to mention all employees to raise concerns for illegal acts or misconduct without fear of retaliation.
Good corporate governance is a foundation of the sustainable development of the NSG Group. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines are defined to strengthen this purpose and to signify our support for the Principles of the Tokyo Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Code.
We will continue to embed the principles of sustainability by working safely and ethically, and by making a positive contribution to our environment.
