Editorial Policy and Selection of Reporting Contents

The Daigas Group reports material aspects of its CSR and its management scheme as well as associated activities for improvement.

The Daigas Group deems that it is necessary for the Group to listen to people's voices sincerely and conduct its business activities based on such voices, if it is to fulfill its corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The Daigas Group identified important aspects for the Group's CSR, which we call “materiality,” or “material aspect,” by referring to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards), a global standard for sustainability report compiled by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), while taking into account the current social issues and continuing dialog with stakeholders and experts in relevant fields.

In this report, the Group explains the management situation regarding each material aspects and the degree of implementation of relevant measures. The Group posts, as much as possible, activities other than those related to the material aspects so that a full picture of the Group's CSR is made known to parties outside and inside the Group.
