Risks and Opportunities

Based on its corporate philosophy, DNP aims to resolve social issues and continues to provide new value that meets peopleʼs expectations. In doing so, we will correctly recognize economic, social and environmental issues and risks and respond to rapid changes in the business environment through activities directly linked to "value creation" and those serving as a "foundation to support value creation."

Identification of Risks

We analyze global social issues and environmental, social and governance (ESG)* trends and broadly identify economic, social and environmental issues that represent risks. We then prioritize activities and define targets based on the interests of stakeholders and the impact on them as well as the degree of importance to DNP.

  • *Including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Guidelines, the UN Global Compact, ISO 26000, Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), FTSE4Good Global Index and MSCI Global Sustainability Indexes

It is a diagram describing the process of identifying risks and issues in the business of the DNP Group and setting activity priorities. Businesses and risks in ESG are identified using SDGs.

Issues and risks identified are organized based on two criteria, i.e., stakeholders’ interest and significance for DNP, and activities are given priorities.

Value Creation

We will contribute to achieving the SDGs by turning risks into chances for expanding business opportunities. We aim to solve social issues through our business activities.

Foundation to Support Value Creation.

We will minimize the impact of assumed risks by prescribing priority themes in CSR management and implementing PDCA.

Promote Commercialization in Four Growth Areas

Through its businesses, DNP is currently focusing efforts on solving social issues that are having a growing impact in Japan and overseas. By leveraging our strengths in P&I (Printing and Information), we will reinforce our monozukuri (manufacturing) foundation and ICT foundation as well as select business commercialization themes unique to DNP and generate new value
