The Process of Identifying Key CSR Issues

Selection of social issues to be addressed by the Nissui Group

To meet diverse social demands and requirements, social issues were selected from among the expectations of society, the key issues of customers and the key issues of competitors. 29 issues to be addressed were selected, taking into consideration the Nissui Group business domains and customer base.

Measurement of materiality and selection of key issues

A questionnaire survey was conducted on the stakeholders (571 stakeholders including customers, employees, NPOs/NGOs and shareholders) on the 29 selected issues and the materiality of each issue was measured.
Additionally, workshops for management were conducted and materiality was measured also from a business perspective. Key issues to be addressed were identified based on the two scales of “Stakeholder” and “Business.”
