Focus 4. Sustainably Reducing Environmental Impact

Definition of Management Focus

We have made diligent efforts to reduce our impact on the global environment. Today, environmental initiatives are essential for surviving as a company from a long-term perspective and for understanding the subtleties of nature and connecting them with our business activities.
Going forward, we will pursue initiatives, including within the supply chain, to identify risks, while at the same time ensuring that we do not miss out on opportunities for business expansion, and that we reduce our environmental impacts.
