Third Mid-Term CSR Targets and KPI Initiatives
We set the key action items in our Third Mid-Term CSR Targets, from fiscal 2016, in accordance with the seven core issues raised in the ISO 26000 international standard on social responsibility, as indicated in the table below.
We had set separate key performance indicators (KPIs) and pursued activities toward targets in the areas of occupational safety and health and the environment. To promote CSR activities more assiduously, in fiscal 2016 we set 14 KPIs covering such items as CSR procurement and compliance and have already started with these initiatives.
