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 the Environment. The reasons for selecting these material issues are as follows.
|Issue||Related actions and expectations|
|Climate change mitigation and adaptation||
The demands and expectations of society regarding corporate initiatives to deal with climate change issues is rising, to the extent that corporations are being requested to disclose their strategies for climate change and their specific amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
The AGC Group belongs to a business category that uses a relatively large amount of natural resources and energy. Accordingly, the Group considers its responsibility to reduce GHG emissions and energy usage.
The AGC Group builds effective management systems and promotes efforts regarding material issues based on shared Group policies.
