In 2017, with the SDGs in mind, we asked for and received many opinions, words of advice, and voices of expectation from stakeholders on the various core themes, especially on "decent work", "solving inequality", "respect for human rights " and "respect for diversity". The opinions were reported to and discussed in the Sustainability Committee, which is an advisory committee to the board of directors, to develop a course of action/concrete plans. The board is committed to these themes, holding further discussions at board meetings.

We will continue our discussions with stakeholders to advance and improve our sustainability management.
