Materiality (Crucial Issues)
In fiscal 2015, the Hitachi Construction Machinery Group identified “eight CSR priority themes” as our Materiality together with internal and external stakeholders. Due to the drastic change in the global society as well as the policies and regulations of each country, we started to review the materiality in FY2020.
The materiality reviewed in FY2021 emphasizes not only the perspectives of SDGs and ESG, but also issues that lead to the improvement and damage of the company’s corporate value. Regarding identifying the materiality themes, we had a lot of discussions while incorporating the opinions of internal and external stakeholders, including several dialogues with outside experts and were approved by the Executive Board and the Board of Directors in July 2021. In the future, we plan to confirm the progress of the medium-term management plan and reflect our Materiality in the management strategy process.
