Materiality

 

We ensure “our company will continue to grow through surpassing social and customer expectations by empowering connections,” as well as “committing to sustainable society, environment and quality through making our employees and stakeholders excited.

What We Envision

In April 2023, we aimed to communicate the essence of the company’s management philosophy more clearly and weave it into work in reality, and defined our purpose (the company’s reason for being in society) as “together, surpassing expectations by empowering connections to enrich society and delight people,” as well as our dream (the company’s contribution to society) as “to create a future world friendly to people and environment where a wide array of features and functions are easily connected” through offering a wide array of our connection solutions. 

We envision that, as a result of making a strong commitment to the purpose and dream for 10 years or around, by 2035, “our company will sustain business growth through surpassing social and customer expectations by empowering connections,” as well as by “committing to sustainable society, environment and quality through making our employees and stakeholders excited.

Materiality Identification Process

To identify the company’s sustainable development goals (materiality) that will affect whether we can realize “what we envision,” we analyzed future industry megatrends and considered a wide range of social issues. We analyzed the importance of each goal to stakeholders, as well as the significance and impact (both opportunities and risks) of each issue on our company’s sustainable growth by using a scoring system. After we made full discussions, also with external experts, we have identified five materiality goals.

Materiality

Five materiality goals for the company to realize “what we envision” and achieve sustainable growth:

1. Addressing social issues and growing the company’s business
2. Unlocking the power of manufacturing to support value creation
3. Working towards secure, safe and livable society that supports people and the environment
4. Developing diverse talent management
5. Improving the management foundation
