The AGC Group has introduced a CSR Monitoring Framework based on ISO 26000. Accordingly, the Group provides information for stakeholders via its CSR Website and other means, reporting on its targets and results in connection with the material issues specified in the Matrix of CSR Issues designated in this monitoring framework, namely “Issues for which a framework is to be developed and a commitment made to society”.
The AGC Group has examined the materiality of each issue by corresponding to Related Actions and Expectations of ISO 26000, and designated selected material issues to correspond to the ISO 26000 core subjects of Human Rights and Labor Practices. The reasons for selecting these material issues are as follows.
|Issue||Related actions and expectations|
|Conditions of work and social protection||
Company employees expect a working environment that fully values their health and safety, and also request that regulations concerning working conditions and employee protection are observed.
The AGC Group operates in approximately 30 countries and regions. The Group complies with all local labor-related laws and regulations and is aware that promoting the creation of work environments in which employees can work with satisfaction and pride is important to its business activities.
The AGC Group builds effective management systems and promotes efforts regarding material issues based on shared Group policies.
