We are expected to resolve social issues to realize a sustainable society amid expanding social challenges with increasingly diversified social values.
We aim to help stakeholders we meet at our contact points stated in the Sustainability Policy lead a fulfilling life and become a reliable corporation as a member of society by meeting corporate social responsibility through community involvement and business activities in the supply chain.
And we will make ourselves healthy by diversifying the work styles of employees working for the Group who play a central role in realizing our aim mentioned above and respecting their health and human rights.
Each of us will deepen insight into social issues, comply with legal requirements and internal standards, and take responsibility for addressing these issues.
2.Guidelines for action

We aim to contribute to revitalizing the area and grow with local communities by combining the “realization of sustainable society” and the “realization of fun in the life” unifying stores and community building in the area through coexistence with local communities to increase the appeal of the area.
(2) Practice of fair business activities
In the entire supply chain, we, together with suppliers as our stakeholders, will not only comply with applicable laws and regulations and social norms in the entire supply chain but also conduct business activities with consideration for social responsibilities such as human rights based on high ethical standards.
(3) Creation of workplaces in view of ease of working and diversity
We will promote work-life balance to realize the environment in which employees and their families feel happy.
