The SCREEN Group established and implemented a CSR mediumterm plan, which was based upon Challenge 2019, our previous three-year medium-term management plan. We identified priority material issues from among many environmental and social issues.In the course of this process, we put great emphasis on stakeholder dialogue, and on the three areas of “environment” (E), “social” (S), and “corporate governance” (G), in order to find and act upon those social issues with which we were most closely connected and which had an impact on achieving a sustainable society.

Green Value 21 (Medium-term plan on EHS Management)

In Green Value 21 Phase IV (FY2018~2020), we have formulated a new EHS framework based on one of pillars of new medium-term management plan, “Promotion of CSR management focusing on ESG”. In this framework, we set a long-term goal, 20% reduction of CO2 emissions per unit of sales from our total value chain by fiscal 2026 compared with fiscal 2014 and so we are implementing wide-ranging measures. We calculate value-chain CO2 emissions by adding CO2 emissions such as those produced by SCREEN products during customer use (Scope 3) to facility CO2 emissions (Scope 1+2).
