ESPEC Quality is more than a word


Materiality (important issues)

Process for identifying materialities

When identifying materialities (important issues), we first referred to GRI standards, SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), external investigations, and other materials, and identified the social issues. Next from the identified issues, we selected the issues which we will address in order to achieve continuing growth from the perspective of consistency with THE ESPEC MIND and ESPEC Vision 2025. The selected issues were discussed and decided by the executive Committee in order to identify ESPEC materialities.
