We maintain dialogue with local communities and collaborate with them in order to understand the issues and expectations in each region, and then use this understanding to implement social contribution activities in the areas in which we do business. These initiatives are carried out in coordination with the General Affairs Department, which is the secretariat of the Corporate Citizenship Subcommittee. The personnel responsible for general affairs at each business site gather for regular exchanges of opinions, held four times a year, during which they share information on the social contribution activities being conducted in each region. We also verify the effects of our business and social contribution activities through dialogue with governmental agencies and local communities. Any complaints or grievances are acknowledged and responded to by business sites and we strive to share and understand the details so that improvements can be made.
