Sustainability Vision and Material Issues

To change society through the power of chemistry based on our purpose, we are strengthening our business execution system in accordance with the belief that we must position the concept of sustainability as an essential component of management. As part of these efforts, we have established Sustainability Vision 2030 and identified material issues for sustainability to implement the main strategies of our long-term vision. We are also working to raise awareness of the material issues within the Company.

Sustainability Vision 2030

Achieve corporate growth through the resolution of social issues

Develop into a company with like-minded partners across the world that realizes its own continuous growth and corporate value improvement, by solving social issues and offering value to society through its technologies and businesses

A company with like-minded partners throughout the world

Become a “Co-creative Chemical Company” that is the first choice of, and can choose, partners in creating a sustainable and better society, including future generations of customers, employees, investors, and stakeholders

Material Issues for Sustainability

With an eye on 2030, Resonac has identified three issues of materiality in addition to their constituent elements. We have reflected these issues of materiality in the strategies set out in the long-term vision, and aim to incorporate them into our nonfinancial KPIs by approximately 2025. The three issues of materiality are also related to the ideal state set out in our long-term vision through to 2030: becoming a company that can compete on the world stage, a company that contributes to a sustainable global society, and a company that develops co-creative talent that represents Japan’s manufacturing industry. In addition, they address both the achievement of our long-term vision and the expectations of society. While we have not set KPIs for corporate governance or stakeholder engagement, we will also focus on these areas, which are as important as our issues of materiality in establishing a common foundation for global management.
