IHI Group Material Issues
The IHI Group defined the Group Management Policy 2019 for the purpose of contributing to sustainable society from a long-term perspective. We have identified two material issues in these policies: pursuing material issues as the foundation of business operations and pursuing material issues through business operations.
Pursuing material issues as the foundation of our business
The IHI Group divides 14 material issues into environmental, social and governance categories as a foundation of our business. The IHI Sustainability Data Book 2020 provides a breakdown of our activities to address each material issue.
- Human rights
- Customer relationship management
- Diversity and inclusion
- Labor practices
- Supply chain management
- Corporate citizenship
