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 Fair Operating Practices. The reasons for selecting these material issues are as follows.

In recent years many countries, including fast-growing nations, have strengthened their regulations and enforcement regarding antitrust laws, and there is strong demand for corporate compliance.
Due to the features of its business (a large share or an oligopolistic industry) and having received orders of payment for surcharges from the authorities concerned in the past, the AGC Group is aware that antitrust law violations pose a major risk to its business activities.
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. For detailed information on each activity and other initiatives related to Fair Operating Practices, please refer to the respective Web pages (accessible via the links in the upper right).
