Sustainability Promotion Structure

Recognition of Social Responsibility: Material Issues

The Group identified 15 material issues in FY2017 and developed four objectives from CSV* viewpoint, but we reviewed the material issues in FY2021 in light of drastic changes in issues and management environment relating to sustainability. In doing so, we identified material issues not only from ESG perspective but also in consideration of their relevance to solutions for social issues in the logistics industry and the business strategy. As a result, we identified a total of 12 material issues including those with strong focus on business and those unique to logistics operations, which is a social infrastructure, such as "Prevent accidents during operation" and "Enhance disaster prevention/mitigation."
With the recognition of the identified material issues as the social responsibility that the Group should fulfill, we promote effective activities toward solving social issues.

Check the adequacy of material issues

In the material issues review conducted in FY2021, we carried out dialogue with external experts on identified processes and identified adequacy of material issues.

Corporate Activities: Development of Objectives

To decide specific activities for the issues that we should address with priority, out of the 12 material issues identified, we classified those related to value creation into three "Objectives"; and we classified those related to the business base, such as compliance and risk management, into "Supportive foundation for the objectives." We also clarified the relation between the objectives and SDGs.
