Business Risks



This website contains information about business conditions, the financial situation, and other factors that may influence investor decisions. Forward-looking statements are based on the judgments of the LIXIL group of companies’ management as of March 2021.
Statements concerning the future and assumptions are subject to uncertainty and risks, and actual results may vary significantly.

Principal Risks and Countermeasures

In order to achieve our business objectives, we regularly identify, assess and monitor risks according to group-wide standards. This enables us to better understand the nature of the world we operate in and make better informed management decisions, ensuring we continue to generate value for our stakeholders.

The LIXIL group regularly monitors strategic and operational risks and implements countermeasures at all levels of the business in order to manage them. In addition, the Audit Committee monitors whether effective measures are being taken to address high-priority risks through participation in the Board of Directors and other committees.

In addition, risks that could have a significant impact on the business in the long-term future (3-5 years or later) are identified as emerging risks and countermeasures are being promoted.
