Four Focus Areas (Materiality)

Four Focus Areas

Process Leading to the Selection of Four Focus Areas

We designated the aforementioned "four focus areas" as "issues of materiality" based on internal discussions made in reference to the comments and viewpoints offered by a range of stakeholders including experts, customers, advanced companies, business partners, the environment, governments and employees. The Fujikura Group is committed to making its sustainable growth compatible with the creation of a sustainable society through its corporate activities as its CSR, and we at the Group believe that the "four focus areas" will and should continue to be the "issues of materiality" for the Group, even if the social environment surrounding our business changes in the future.

Setting CSR Priority Measureas

Based on the Fujikura Group CSR Basic Policy and the Four Priority Issues, the Fujikura Group has established a CSR priority messure with the fiscal year 2020 as the final year as well as the medium-term management plan in order to link with the management strategy I will. We conducted "materiality matrix analysis" with stakeholders inclusive in mind, and evaluated and verified it from two perspectives, "interests of stakeholders" and "degree of influence on our business".

As a result, we set 12 CSR priority mesuares and 11 follow-up items, and evaluate targets and results each year to achieve the target of FY 2020. Progress to the target is published annually on the CSR website.
