Through our main business activities of consulting and IT solutions, NRI will act based on our Corporate Philosophy of “Dream up the future” to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society. The concept of Creating Shared Value (CSV) has attracted significant attention in recent year. This concept has already been incorporated into our Corporate Philosophy. We have engaged in corporate management for creating value that can be shared with society.
In May 2017, NRI declared our participation in the UN Global Compact and has taken action in order to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Furthermore, from the perspectives of management and external stakeholders, we have identified four material themes (Materiality) with a high degree of priority. We identified these themes based on international standards and guidelines such as GRI (G4), ISO 26000, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), and the United States Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), as well as on the opinions of external experts.
NRI is proposing and implementing action plans for the resolution of Materiality. Furthermore, we are periodically evaluating the progress of these action plans and then revising the action plans and the Materiality itself.
Sustainability Management Structure
NRI established the Social Value Creation Committee and the Sustainability Activities Committee as a special appointment at the direction of the President & CEO to promote overall sustainability management. Both committees make proposals to Senior Management Committee and others.
