Identification of Material Issues Related to the Environment
At Shionogi, we draw up a Materiality Map regarding our business activities in consideration of their relevance to our business and their importance in society.
In the process of identification, we extracted and assessed materiality in meetings among related divisions within the Company and through dialogues with ESG institutional investors, external experts, and other such stakeholders. The material issues thus identified were reported to the Corporate Executive Meeting and the Board of Directors upon approval by the Shionogi Group Central EHS Committee.
Shionogi hopes to further deepen its activities by clarifying its concrete steps toward handling material issues in the future and key performance indicators (KPI), to offer value to society and meet our stakeholders’ expectations.
