Our Way of Thinking on CSR

Our Way of Thinking on CSR

The History and Themes of Our CSR Activities

Our work on pollution problems at our Fujisawa Plant in the early 1970s taught us to undertake environmental conservation as an issue crucial to the sustainability of our operations. A particular characteristic of special glass manufacturers is the consumption of large amounts of energy and resources, and the emission of carbon dioxide. Accordingly, environmental conservation continues to be an issue of the upmost importance for our group.
At the same time, we have engaged in contribution to the community mainly by assisting with the education of local human resources and through active involvement in employment of the disabled.

Based on this historical background, and in order to further advance our CSR activities, we have established a “way of thinking” that forms the foundation of these activities, which we have set forth in our CSR priority themes.

Our Fundamental Way of Thinking Regarding CSR

CSR is a key area in our corporate activities and cannot exist separate from our corporate philosophy structure. Accordingly, we carry out our CSR activities in accordance with the intention of our corporate philosophy structure and, through the implementation of CSR activities, we aim to raise our corporate value and realize a sustainable society. We have established both of these approaches as our fundamental way of thinking in regard to CSR.

Our Way of Thinking on CSR

We promote CSR with our corporate philosophy structure as the basic principles.
Through our CSR activities we will raise our corporate value and realize a sustainable society.

Three Priority Themes and Our Basic Policy

We have established the Environment, Diversity and Inclusion, and Community Contribution as the three priority themes of our CSR. These themes have a strong association with the priority issues that we have focused on so far (environmental conservation, community contribution, employment of the disabled). We have reconfirmed the background and importance of these three themes and have clarified the future direction for scaling up our initiatives on a broader scale. In addition, we will place emphasis on these themes, as we believe they are directly linked to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In order to further clarify the direction of our CSR activities, we have determined a basic policy regarding our priority themes. Furthermore, we have identified corporate governance as what supports the nucleus of CSR and positioned it within the framework of our CSR.
