Materiality identification process

In identifying materialities for the Nippon Pillar Packing Group’s, we begin by assessing the current state of affairs and identifying social challenges. Then, after evaluating and prioritizing social challenges, we confirm the appropriateness of the proposed materiality by drawing on the opinions of experts. Finally, the identified materiality groups and content are approved and determined by the Management Meeting and the Board of Directors.

Assess the current state
of affairs and identify
social challenges
In assessing and analyzing the current state of our business affairs and discussing and reviewing the challenges to be addressed in the future, we check these against global guidelines such as the 169 targets of the SDGs and ISO 26000, refer to key issues at other companies, and incorporate the opinions of experts.
Evaluate and prioritize
social challenges
The management team discusses the potential social challenges, evaluates the challenges, and narrows down the candidates. The importance of the management perspective from the perspective of contribution to the sustainable growth of the Group and the importance of the stakeholder perspective reflecting the demands of stakeholders and society are then determined, and the materiality is evaluated and prioritized by along these two axes.
Confirm appropriateness
of proposed materiality
The materialities are prioritized and mapped to a materiality map, and the opinions of external experts are incorporated to confirm their objectivity and appropriateness.
Approval by
Management Meeting
and Board of Directors
After incorporating the opinions of experts, we identify the materiality group and the materialities that are linked to that materiality group.The Management Meeting then confirms the appropriateness of the Group’s approach to these issues, and finally, the Board of Directors gives its approval to the decision.
