Sustainability Management

In “Group Management Policy 2019”, the IHI Group defined our approach as one that adapts to changes in the social environment from long-term perspectives. “Project Change” incorporates the basic concept of the Group Management Policy to tackle social issues and issues of our customers directly, ultimately realizing our goal.

Material Issues

The IHI Group has identified material issues to be prioritized to achieve sustainable growth as a company and realize a sustainable society.
As part of Project Change, formulated in 2020, we are striving to create “a world where nature and technology work in unity” in the near future. By setting this goal, the social issues we need to address along with the values we aim to provide have been clarified. We re-identified and revised our material issues according to the significance of each of the social issues to address with the goals of becoming carbon-free, disaster prevention and mitigation, and materializing fulfilling lifestyles.
In ESG management, greater importance is placed on engaging in efforts to combat the global challenge of climate change, respecting the human rights of everyone involved in our businesses, empowering diverse human resources as the driving force of value creation, and earning trust from stakeholders through integrity management.
