Identification of material (essential) issues

In November 2021, we defined important social issues as material issues in accordance with the “Management Philosophy,” “Fundamental Policies,” and “Medium- and Long-Term Basic Policy” of the Toho Titanium Group and international guidelines, such as GRI and SASB.

We put together and summarized the “Degree of importance for stakeholders” and “Degree of importance for our corporate group” shown in the figure, and defined them as material issues of our corporate group.

Four material issues

Through the identification process, we defined the following four material issues we must address.
While considering the changes in the business environment, opinions of stakeholders, etc., we review them every year, and revise them appropriately.
