Our lives are exposed to environmental risks such as increasing global warming and unusual weather. We, as a member of society, think it is our important mission to place environmental issues at the top of our agenda and work together to maintain this irreplaceable global environment. For the purpose of achieving our mission, we will take action to resolve environmental issues through business activities. We think it will perpetuate the contact points with various stakeholders as stated in the Sustainability Policy.
Each of us will deepen insight into environmental issues, comply with legal requirements and internal standards, and take responsibility for addressing these issues.
