Identifying Material Issues in CSR

At the SCREEN Group, under the CSR medium-term plan, we have identified material issues out of the various environmental and social problems that we ought to be tackling by taking into account societal expectations, such as SDGs. When identifying these material issues, we attached great importance to our dialogue with stakeholders, and for the three fields of Environment(E), Social (S), and Governance (G), we selected issues that our company affects, and issues that influence our company, and decided to focus on them. In particular, in the area of Environment, we are working to reduce our total CO2 emissions by 20% by fiscal 2026, compared with those as of fiscal 2014.
