LIXIL has identified material issues that we, our stakeholders, and society in general consider to be of the highest importance for improving our company’s sustainable growth and corporate value for driving progress on sustainable development . We are working to resolve these issues through our business activities while monitoring the progress against our goals.
LIXIL’s material issues are determined by selecting and evaluating issues from both a risk and opportunity perspective using the following processes, taking into consideration LIXIL Purpose, Medium-Term Management plan, Corporate Responsibility strategy, value creation processes and other business strategies, stakeholder needs and expectations as well as current social circumstances and issues. We review these material issues to accommodate any changes in LIXIL’s immediate environment or society at large.
