Key CSR Issues, Medium-Term Targets and Performances of CSR Activities
In fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, the Kawasaki Group identified material issues or materiality that we should address. In parallel, we reviewed the framework of our CSR activities: We positioned efforts in solving social issues through business as top priorities that the Kawasaki Group should achieve over a long-term, and defined other issues as CSR issues that underpin the management foundation.
The CSR issues that underpin the management foundation are classified into E (environment), S (society) and G (governance).
