Co-Existence and Mutual Prosperity with Local Communities

Vision for 2030

A company that contributes to regional development and earns trust as a member of the local community

Approach and Policy

Development activities, particularly the development of mining or smelting and refining projects, can have a considerable impact on the lives of local residents, including forcing relocations. We think it is important that we engage with communities in the areas in which we do business through dialogue to find out what issues they are facing and to see how we can contribute to solving these issues. Based on this, we will vitalize regional economies, including by hiring and procuring locally in accordance with needs, and continue to support areas that have been affected by major natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons.
