Solving the world’s social issues set forth by the SDGs is one of the social responsibilities that our Group, supported by our global stakeholders including customers, suppliers, employees, and investors, must fulfill. Our business, which contributes to energy saving and environmental conservation with our core competence “technologies for stopping fluid leakage,” has a high affinity with ESG and SDGs. We recognize this will make a great contribution to improving both economic and social value of the Group.
Under the medium-term management plan BTvision22, ESG/SDGs management is positioned as one of the basic policies. We have set goals and promoted initiatives related to ESG/SDGs in the activities of our internal committees. Furthermore, in April 2021, we established the ESG/SDGs Promotion Committee to oversee ESG/SDGs initiatives, including the activities of these internal committees. The committee consists of the President, who is the chairperson of the committee, and the general managers of each business site, all of whom are correctly and powerfully working to promote ESG/SDGs management. At the same time, we are also promoting daily efforts to spread awareness of ESG/SDGs among our employees, which will motivate them to take part in ESG/SDGs initiatives throughout the Company.
For Nippon Pillar Packing, which has worked to refine its technologies for stopping fluid leakage, the SDGs represent a major opportunity to balance social contributions with our own growth. Proactive efforts will focus especially on the following goals.
