Progress of the MOS Indices

In FY2020, our activities resulted in an annual target achievement rate of 60%, earning 181 points. We are intensifying our efforts to improve stainability.

Progress of MOS Indices: Relative to the FY2021 targets for S, H and C Indices set at 100 points each, FY2019 results were 76 points for S Indices, 51 points for H Indices and 54 points for C Indices, totaling 181 points.

Outline of S Indices

We achieved the APTSIS 20 targets for the reduction of global environmental impact, particularly in atmospheric and water environments. We reached our targets through business withdrawals and site mergers that allowed us to reduce emissions that produce various environmental impacts, as well as improvements in facilities and energy conservation. The targeted contribution to the reduction of environmental impact through products and services was not achieved due to a decrease in sales and demand for products that contribute to reducing GHG emissions or solving water resource issues. We aim to achieve environmental impact neutrality by strengthening our sustainability management under KAITEKI Vision 30 and the implementation of measures under APTSIS 25.

Outline of H Indices

The contribution to achieving healthy and hygienic lives through products and services was not achieved due to a decrease in sales for related products. Meanwhile, a positive contribution was made to the prevention and treatment of diseases throughout APTSIS 20, as sales of related products grew steadily.

Outline of C Indices

The target for comfort value provision was not achieved as related products did not expand on the scale envisioned. For initiatives relating to stakeholder engagement, we stepped up communication with business partners, for example, through briefing sessions and the distribution of guidelines on CSR procurement, and worked to build sustainable supply chains. In terms of customer satisfaction, we did not achieve the level of performance that we had achieved in the previous medium-term management plan, despite targeting further improvement during APTSIS 20. We will further utilize the evaluation results in our business activities in a bid to make further improvements in customer satisfaction.
The number of safety-related incidents has been improving year by year, because we are implementing regular awareness campaigns and accident prevention measures that utilize the latest technologies, sharing information on accidents, and developing human resources who are responsible for safety at work sites. However, we fell significantly short of our targets on accident and disaster prevention. We will continue to implement programs to improve accident and disaster prevention and ensure a rigorous approach to safety. Having built an organization that is dynamic and collaborative and where employees are motivated to work, we have seen an improvement in the percentage of employees taking paid leave, but long working hours are on the rise. In light of the changes in work styles brought about by COVID-19, we are working to implement further operational reforms and improve work-life balance. The awareness of compliance among employees has improved through a variety of training programs.
