IHI Group Material Issues

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.

Pursuing Material Issues Through Business

The IHI Group set following nine issues and themes for each issue to address though business. These themes are updated as necessary as we strive to solve social issues through our business activities.
