Material CSR Issues of the JFE Group
Identified Material CSR Issues
Evolving environmental and societal issues are creating increasingly complex challenges for companies. JFE has identified material CSR issues that strongly impact where and how the company should invest its resources, making every effort to minimize negative societal impact and maximize the societal value as only JFE can.
Five areas of focus and 13 specific issues were identified as material CSR issues. Going forward, JFE will respect human rights as a fundamental aspect of its business and activities contributing to society and will advance its efforts to address these material CSR issues based on fair and transparent corporate governance. Such initiatives will demonstrate the JFE vision of “Contributing to society with the world’s most innovative technology” and will contribute to JFE’s sustainable growth as well as the sustainability of society.
Contributing to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In September 2015, a UN Summit adopted 17 SDGs to be addressed through worldwide efforts to achieve sustainable development. JFE is responding to this call through contributions achieved by its business activities.
