CSR Management

At DNP, we have a Sustainability Committee comprised of directors and corporate officers in charge of the respective matters at the head office. Led by a managing director, the committee deliberates on and decides DNP’s CSR policies and targets. The dedicated CSR department and other relevant departments then collaborate to undertake specific activities based on, and to achieve, the targets established by the committee. Various committees have also been established to deal with principal CSR themes such as corporate ethics and information security.

DNP has set eight principal themes to be addressed as part of CSR management. In addition to identifying themes that we deem important and a priority based primarily on our management strategy and business fields, we also include themes that the international community views as critical, starting with the United Nations Global Compact* Ten Principles and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and comprehensively analyze them.

*DNP announced its support for the United Nations Global Compact in July 2006.
