Sustainability Management

Basic Policy

The Fujibo Group implements "sustainability management" that incorporates sustainability at the core of our business strategy.

The Group's sustainability management is characterized by achieving sustainability through a well-balanced implementation of "profit-making," growth, profitability, social contribution, and fair and transparent SDGs management founded on integrity.

A company must be financially profitable in order to pay dividends to its shareholders and achieve sustainable growth. In addition, focusing on being a public institution, it is important to establish a strong relationship with stakeholders as a company that is more trusted by the society under proper corporate governance. Our Group will continue to work toward the sustainable enhancement of our corporate value.

Sustainability Management System

At present, the world is facing many serious social challenges, including climate change, and society’s expectations of companies as a leader in solving these issues are increasing. Against this backdrop, we established the ESG Committee in April 2021 to promote sustainability management across the entire Fujibo Group by addressing important issues related to the SDGs, in line with the launch of our Medium-term Management Plan “Zokyo 21-25.”

The “ESG Committee” is headed by the President and consists of three subcommittees: the Environment Subcommittee, the Social Subcommittee and the Governance Subcommittee. The Committee will make recommendations to ensure that the Group responds appropriately to sustainability issues and that its sustainability efforts lead to medium- to long-term improvements in corporate value. In this system, each subcommittee addresses various issues related to sustainability promotion, and then consults with the ESG Committee, the Management Committee, or the Board of Directors depending on the level of importance. Therefore, the Board of Directors makes final decisions on important policies and initiatives for overall management and also controls and supervises the Management Committee and the ESG Committee, and other relevant bodies.

Although the Polishing Pad Business, Industrial Chemicals Business, Lifestyle Apparel Business and Other Businesses have different requirements for sustainability, we will proactively tackle them from the perspective of risks and opportunities.
