ABC Group sustainability management follows the implementation framework and related policies below.
ABC Group CSR Basic Policy <Action Guidelines>
The ABC Group CSR Basic Policy Action Guidelines are based on the attitude that the media-focused ABC Group businesses are in and of themselves our CSR. Based on this idea, we reconfirmed examples of CSR within the regular business activities pursued by group companies, formulating the CSR Basic Policy Action Guidelines in 2018 to expand these concepts further. We believe the practical activities accomplished through our regular businesses help solve social issues, leading to the sustainable growth of the ABC Group and society.
In particular, we determined action guidelines (materialities) to prioritize and practice throughout our business operations, focusing on information we distribute as a group (broadcast programs, events, and a variety of other content) that impacts our stakeholders most closely.
(From an ESG perspective, this content includes certain businesses and social contribution activities, etc., related to E (environment) and S (social). For information on how the ABC Group fosters work environments to maximize the performance of human capital and pursue diversity, as well as to learn more about compliance and basic governance, see the About Us and Investor Relations webpages on our corporate website.)
In the future, we will determine more materialities to pursue sustainability in all aspects of the ABC Group business, including the action guidelines referenced here. We will disclose related details as promptly as possible.
