In April 2018, JVCKENWOOD established the position of Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) as an executive in charge under the supervision of the Board of Directors, as well as a Sustainability Management Office and a system for rapidly implementing our Sustainability Management Strategy under the CSO’s purview. The Sustainability Management Office is responsible for promoting the company-wide Sustainability Management Strategy and for managing progress in implementing the strategy, as well as for periodically reviewing material issues and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and enhancing the disclosure of sustainability-related information.
In pursuing the Sustainability Management Strategy across the company, it is essential to foster awareness of the issues faced and understanding of sustainability within the company. To those ends, the Sustainability Management Office actively communicates with the relevant departments and sections and takes the lead in efforts linking business to sustainability. The head of the Sustainability Management Office will submit regular reports on the progress made in implementing the Sustainability Management Strategy to the Board of Directors and, as necessary, present proposals for deliberations at meetings of the Board of Directors.
