Basic Policy and Structure
Message from the Executive in Charge
By practicing the “Sysmex Way,” we are working toward the realization of a sustainable society.
Member of the Managing Board
and Senior Executive Officer
Senior Managing Director
Sysmex believes its CSR is to build trust and confidence among stakeholders by putting into practice the “Sysmex Way,” the corporate philosophy for the Sysmex Group.
To practice CSR, Sysmex has identified priority issues (materiality). We are addressing these issues in accordance with our action plans: a Mid-Term CSR Plan through fiscal 2019 and an annual plan. Important CSR themes, such as identifying materiality and formulating mid-term CSR plans, are discussed and reported at management meetings. In addition, we have established the CSR Promotion Department, which is dedicated to the formulation of CSR activity plans and the dissemination of CSR information.
Sysmex will continue working toward the creation of a fulfilling and healthy society through its business activities, provide a working environment that allows diverse human resources to maximize their skills, and work proactively to address global environmental problems, which are growing increasingly severe. In these ways, we are contributing toward the realization of a sustainable society.
Our CSR is to put the “Sysmex Way” into practice, thereby building trust and confidence among stakeholders.
The “Sysmex Way,” the corporate philosophy for the Sysmex Group, indicates the way the most basic corporate activities ought to be conducted, consisting of three elements necessary for continued growth through contributing to society: Mission, Value and Mind. The mission expresses the expansion of our business from activities centered on the field of in vitro diagnostics—a focus since our establishment—to the broader healthcare domain with its even closer connection to human health. In this manner, the mission asserts our aim of contributing toward the realization of a society filled with abundance, health and joy.
The Sysmex Way’s Core Behaviors clarify provision of specific value to customers, employees, business partners, shareholders, society and all our stakeholders. For example, to provide reassurance to all members of society we carry out our business in strict compliance with laws and regulations, as well as in adherence to high ethical standards. We also consider it important to play an active role in resolving environmental issues and other problems that impact our society today.
CSR Management Structure
We have set up various committees, headed by executives, to promote activities according to key CSR-related themes, including compliance, risk management and the environment. We have also established the CSR Promotion Department as the specialized department for planning, promoting CSR activities and disseminating CSR-related information both inside and outside the Company.
Important CSR themes, such as identifying materiality and formulating mid-term CSR plans, are discussed and reported at management meetings attended by members of the Managing Board. We also analyze expectations and requests from society and extract our tasks from this information. Related departments then reflect the tasks in their execution plans and activities, resulting in a PDCA cycle.
