SustainabilityAbout the "Sustainability" Website
Segmentation of Information and Editorial Policy of the Sustainability Website
In Value Creation 2023, TDK’s Medium-Term Plan, we outlined our aim of rotating the cycle whereby the enhancement of social value leads to commercial value (corporate growth), the efficient use of the profits and assets derived therefrom leads to improved asset value, and the utilization of these assets leads to further contributions to society.
This sustainability website (Sustainability Report) carries ESG information relevant to the enhancement of social value. In editing this information, against the background of social issues, we have endeavored to present information relating to key CSR issues (materiality) identified in accordance with our management strategy, the degree of impact of the TDK Group’s business on society, the degree of stakeholder interest, and our current response, and taking the opinions of stakeholders into account as well, in a more detailed manner and also to report on the progress that has been made.
In addition, in the shareholder and investor information on TDK’s website, we explain our policies and strategies relating to the optimization of commercial value and asset value through IR news, the IR calendar, latest materials, and so on. And in the Annual Report, we introduce stories about how the TDK Group, while creating the three values, contributes to society and, as a result, grows its business. Please take a look at them.
