Integrated Report

Integrated Report 2020

Starting from 2020, we issue an Integrated Report that integrates financial information, such as business results, and non-financial information, such as CSR activities, into a single report.
We thereby aim at providing a variety of our stakeholders with our business performance/operations/strategies, and initiatives and approaches for sustainability, in an easy-to-understand manner.
