Since FY2006, Toshiba Group has designated December as Sustainability Month (renamed from CSR Month in FY2020). During this month, we hold seminars on topics such as human rights, and concentrate on social contribution activities at each of the Group companies and business sites.
In FY2021, the President and CEO explained in his message the reidentification of the Company’s material issues and also the importance of sustainability-related initiatives including active participation in those addressing climate change and social contribution activities. He also spoke of his desire for every employee to reconsider how their individual work can link in with society.
During the month, Mr. Kenji Fuma, CEO of Neural Inc. gave an online seminar on the ESG and initiatives towards carbon neutrality which companies are expected to achieve. We also utilized our internal website to distribute the content aimed at deepening knowledge of ESG and the Toshiba Group’s sustainability management as well as seminars on human rights, and also to share examples of social contribution activities and health and safety activities that were commended for their excellence.
Additionally, in FY2021, an annually-held Toshiba Group Volunteer Days event took place at the beginning of December, which is around the International Volunteer Day on December 5, to provide volunteering opportunities for all Toshiba Group employees.
Moving forward, we will continue to work to raise each employee’s awareness of sustainability.
