CEO Message

Nissha Group’s CSR

Junya Suzuki, President and CEO, Chairman of the Board

Nissha has integrated its standards of thought and rules of conduct into Nissha Philosophy. And Mission, ideals held in high regard, states “We realize the enrichment of people’s lives by creating technology and developing it into economic and social value through the diverse capabilities, passion, and leadership of the global Nissha Group.”

Perpetual corporate growth comes from the creation of value for society with the creation of financial value. We maximize our capabilities driven by our technology, passion, and leadership, and with the energy infused in us by our stakeholders, together create value for the future. We at Nissha Group believe that is the very corporate social responsibility (CSR) we are required to fulfill.

Promoting CSR from a Global Perspective

In April 2012, we joined the United Nations Global Compact and declared our commitment in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. In April 2015, we established a CSR Committee dedicated to promoting CSR management, with the aim of enhancing our value as a global company over the medium to long term. Also by conforming to standards provided by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and identifying and addressing material issues, we hope to ensure steady reduction of CSR risks and build a solid foundation as a corporation with respect to environmental, social, and governance (ESG).

One material issue we are working to address is the promotion of diversity. With Nissha Group bases present across the globe, our human resources are ever more diverse. We believe that the growth of our employees is essential to drive the growth of Nissha Group. To this end, we carry on with efforts to enhance our support systems and encourage active participation in business so that all employees, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or disability, may shine and live up to their full potential. And in addition, environment-conscious management is also a matter of priority. In this area, we promote various activities through our business and participate related initiatives actively such as the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and others.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 call for all sectors of the globe to contribute to the achievement of sustainable societies for future generations. As a corporate group that aims to earn your trust and be chosen by our stakeholders worldwide, we at Nissha Group believe it is important to face up to the challenges of sustainable development. To do this, we will listen to our stakeholders even more closely than before, reflect your voice in our business activities, and by doing so, aspire to create further business opportunities toward realizing sustainable management and a sustainable future.

Initiatives in Corporate Governance

Recognizing corporate governance as a top management priority, we strive to ensure transparency and fairness in our business operations, thereby promoting prompt and resolute decision-making and enhancing our corporate value over the long term.

In 2008, we adopted the corporate officer system to segregate our management oversight function from our business execution function. We also make active efforts to appoint independent directors—of our eight directors, four are independent with one being a woman—to ensure transparency and fairness in our business operations, and to draw on their insight to formulate strategies and practice management oversight. We have established a Corporate Governance Policy, followed by a Nomination and Remuneration Committee, and launched efforts to evaluate the effectiveness of our Board of Directors once a year. And in our M&A activity of recent years, through the processes of due diligence and post-merger integration (PMI), we work to reduce risks and maximize synergy with the new subsidiaries we welcome into the Nissha Group.

In Closing

On January 1, 2018, we began operating the Sixth Medium-term Business Plan (three-year plan). Until now, Nissha have carried on with our pursuit of customer satisfaction while aspiring to be a truly global company. Moving forward, we hope to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society working with our stakeholders in facing up to the challenges of global society, and aim to further enhance our corporate value.

We hope you will give CSR Report 2017 a read and offer us your candid views and advice.

We look forward to your continued guidance and encouragement.
January, 2018
