LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
LIXIL’s CR Committee meets quarterly with the aim of developing a swifter response to sustainability issues in the economic, environmental, and social fields. In FYE2021, the committee held workshops to review LIXIL’s material issues and also discussed various topics, including the LIXIL Plastics Action Statement announced in October 2020 and our Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Strategy updated in March 2021.
Management leadership and coordination with the technology businesses is critical to achieve prompt and appropriate action. Accordingly, the CR Committee consists of executive officers from corporate functions, including Human Resources, Legal & Compliance, Finance, Technology/Quality/Environment, R&D, Marketing, and Communications/Investor Relations/External Affairs/Corporate Responsibility, and representatives from each technology business.
The executive officer in charge of CR swiftly reports the results of CR Committee discussions and deliberations to the LIXIL Board of Executive Officers, enabling necessary decisions to be made. The executive officers, who are in charge of promoting CR initiatives, immediately indicate and communicate decisions made in the CR Committee to their respective functions to facilitate speedy, concrete action.
