With the company creed of “Boundless creativity and social contribution,” we are undertaking a wide range of efforts in the key CSR areas of environmental preservation, creating pleasant workplaces, and creating livable communities based on good corporate governance. Through business activities that contribute to the creation of a better society, such as providing airbags that reduce injuries during accidents and lighter weight parts that contribute to improved automobile fuel economy and reduced carbon emissions, we will grow sustainably as a company and meet the expectations of our stakeholders around the world, including customers, shareholders, investors, employees, suppliers and local communities.
Materiality determination process
Step 1 Identifying issues
The Toyoda Gosei Group identified issues to be investigated with reference to the GRI Standards, which are international guidelines for CSR (ESG), and sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the growth of international society.
Step 2 Judging the importance of each element from internal and external perspectives
The issues for consideration identified in STEP 1 were placed on a materiality map. Based on interviews with experts and stakeholders, items placed in the “very high region” by either were judged to be issues of utmost importance.
Step 3 Materiality determination
The important issues identified in STEP 2 were investigated by a project team made up of people from relevant departments, and nine key CSR issues were decided. This materiality is obviously of interest to and has a strong impact on stakeholders. These issues are positioned as important themes for the Toyoda Gosei Group as well.
