We, JVCKENWOOD Group, narrowed down the eight social issue themes (1. Society, 2. Labor, 3. Environment, 4. Quality, 5. Economy, 6. Safety, 7. Governance, 8. Value Creation) that the Group will help to resolve. And then we plotted them into four quadrants – Conformity, Visibility, Diversity and Continuity – that reflect their connectedness to “business” and to “society”. These eight themes are the basis for formulating the new medium-term business plan, Vision 2023, and are reflected in the identification of Materiality (important issues) and the establishment of KPIs (Key Performance Indicators).JVCKENWOOD also recognizes that corporate contributions are essential to the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For this reason, we have established a policy of achieving the SDGs through contributions to Society 5.0. Out of the total of 17 SDGs, eight goals that are particularly relevant to social issues are identified as priorities for the JVCKENWOOD Group.
For further details of the relationship between the eight social issues and SDGs, see Contributions to SDGs, and for information on the progress of our identified materiality and KPIs, see Material Issues and Results.
