LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
LIXIL’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) Committee was established to align with the technology business operating model introduced in April 2015. The CR Committee meets quarterly and works to ensure swifter action in response to economic, environmental, and social sustainability issues. In FYE 2020, the committee discussed and determined new CR strategy, key human rights issues, and TCFD response.
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, Finance, Quality, Environment, R&D, Marketing, and Public Affairs/Investor Relations/External Affairs/Corporate Responsibility, and representatives from each technology business.
The executive officers responsible for CR swiftly report the results of CR Committee discussions and deliberations to other executive officers and directors of LIXIL, 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.
