ESPEC Quality is more than a word



ESPEC 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 Management Committee in order to identify ESPEC materialities.

Materialities and SDG targets

The materiality identified by the Company and the related SDGs targets are as follows. We have incorporated this materiality into each of the management strategies in our medium-term management plan "Progressive Plan 2025," which started in fiscal 2022, and we are working to strengthen our businesses that contribute to solving social issues and to strengthen our management foundation with a focus on E (environment), S (society), and G (governance).
