Global

The HCM Group has established “CSR Goal” and “CSR Activity Guidelines”, in addition to “CSR Agendas” which are based on the ISO 26000 global standard for corporate social responsibility; as of FY2015 we have begun work on those initiatives, and we continue to promote CSR activities. In addition, we have also discussed materiality identification when establishing creating shared value (CSV) themes, and in future we will be considering management systems based on the results.
