Materiality / Key Issues

Double Materiality in Enhancing Sustainability Management

In order to achieve a sustainable society, the Group has analyzed the magnitude of the effects and the impact of our business activities on stakeholders, the economy, society and the environment. At the Board of Directors meeting, we identified five materialities based on the concept of "double materiality," which integrates materiality from the investors' perspective (financial materiality) and materiality from the stakeholders' perspective (environmental and social materiality).

The concept of double materiality is defined in an update to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) based on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) issued by the European Commission in April 2021, which provides a framework for future disclosures.

The Concept of Double Materiality

Based on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) issued by the European Commission in April 2021, the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) has been updated to provide a framework for disclosures in the future.
*1 Financial Materiality / Events essential to understanding the financial developments and results and financial conditions of a company
*2 Environmental and Social Materiality / Impacts that corporate decision-making and business activities have on the outside world

Five Materialities

The Fujibo Group is focusing on the following initiatives through our business activities in order to achieve a sustainable society together with all of our stakeholders:

1. Sincere Efforts toward the Realization of a Sustainable Environment and Society

In order to maintain the sustainability of the global environment, we aim to establish a stable and sustainable procurement and supply system by working on the preservation of the natural environment and biodiversity and promoting effective utilization of resources.

2. Adaptation to Climate Change

We will work to reduce the environmental impact of our business activities to achieve a decarbonized society and respond appropriately to the potential impacts of climate change on companies that may arise in the future.

3. Co-creation of Value with Various Stakeholders

Through our business activities, we will emphasize dialogue with various stakeholders and contribute to the sustainable growth and development of local communities and other organizations.

4. Creation of an Environment that Accepts Diversity and Maximizes Individual Capabilities

We will respect diversity regardless of gender, age, nationality, etc., and promote the development of a work environment that will enable employees to demonstrate their abilities free from anxiety.

5. Enhancement of Corporate Governance and Thorough Compliance and Risk Management

We aim to achieve sustainable growth by implementing high transparency in our management practices and maintaining a risk management system to prevent the occurrence of accidents and fraud.
