Important Topics (Materiality)
After listening to the opinions of our stakeholders, including our employees, the company where the company is located, and our shareholders, we identified important issues (materiality: the most important issues to be resolved through our core business) while referring to guidelines related to ESGs.
【6 Major Challenges】
