CSR Activity Report (CSR Guideline Activity Reports)

Toray Group has established CSR Guidelines to govern its CSR initiatives. Intended to be comprehensive, they cover aspects from corporate governance to social contribution. The CSR Guidelines consist of ten themes, each of which is assigned an implementation leader.
The Group also establishes a CSR roadmap every three years to ensure that all of its efforts to live up to the CSR Guidelines move forward in a systemic and organized manner. Each CSR roadmap defines targets for specific initiatives and establishes key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure that progress is quantitatively managed each year.
