For the Kobe Steel Group, sustainability management goes beyond compliance with external regulations, systems, and standards to also encompass the development of business that helps resolve social issues and ensure the sustainability of social capital that supports our business. Sustainability management is an initiative that is absolutely essential for the continuity and development of the Group.
The Group strives to provide technologies, products, and services that help reduce environmental impact, such as reducing the weight of vehicles and conserving energy, in addition to taking action to preserve the environment and other CSR activities. To further advance sustainability management, Kobe Steel revised its systems in 2019.
Under this new structure, the Company is moving forward on identifying materiality and creating a new road map for sustainability management in the next medium-term management plan.
