To date, Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd. (“Hitachi Chemical” or “the Company”) has taken active steps to communicate with its stakeholders through a variety of media and information tools. Among a host of initiatives, the Company has published both Annual Report and Sustainability Report annually. Recognizing that non-financial information integrated with financial data has played an increasingly important role in evaluating a company’s activities in recent years, Hitachi Chemical has decided to produce an integrated annual and sustainability report for this year.
Our hope is that this report will provide stakeholders with a deeper understanding of the Company’s economic, environmental and social activities that reflect our founding spirit and corporate philosophy.
We evaluated this year’s report as achieving Application Level C by self-assessment. A comparative table with GRI Guideline indexes is included below.
