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|
|Sustainable resource use||
As the world economy develops, resource procurement risks are becoming apparent on a global scale. Risks are particularly marked in energy and water procurement, and in rare metals, which are supplied by only a few regions.
The AGC Group belongs to a business category that uses a relatively large amount of natural resources and energy, as well as rare metals and other materials. Accordingly, it considers the importance of limiting the procurement and use of these resources.
The AGC Group builds effective management systems and promotes efforts regarding material issues based on shared Group policies.
The following charts show the AGC Group’s 2015 results, self-evaluation, and 2016 targets in connection with its material issues.
