KPIs and Progress

The Toyo Ink Group set material issues in CSR by having dialogues with its stakeholders, and specified five material issues and 19 actions. In addition, we clarified the relevance between the material issues and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs.) In fiscal 2019, we confirmed the progress of our CSR activities based on KPIs and goals under SIC-I (fiscal 2018 to 2020), which were set for each material issue. We have produced certain results, including the “recycling system for plastic containers and packaging” on the Material Issue 1, the reduction of CO2 emissions exceeding the target (Material Issue 2), and the promotion of diversity and initiatives for health and productivity management as internal measures (Material Issue 4). Moving forward, we will link these activities to CSR activities in fiscal 2020, review KPIs and targets for SIC-II, the next medium-term management plan, and promote CSR activities of the overall Group through PDCA cycles.
