Sysmex has established a specialized CSR Promotion Department for planning, drawing up proposals for, and promoting CSR activities, as well as disseminating CSR-related information both inside and outside the company. The department’s activities are conducted under the control and management of a senior managing director and member of the Managing Board.
We have also identified priority issues (materiality) with a view to realizing a sustainable society and achieving sustainable growth for the Group. In fiscal 2020, we reviewed materiality while working on our new mid-term management plan (fiscal 2021 to 2023), taking account of changes in economic, environmental, and social issues. We also revisited our KPIs linked to materiality and set the reviewed KPIs as our new sustainability targets. Our departments roll out their execution plans and activities to achieve these sustainability targets. They also report their progress regularly at management meetings, including the Managing Board meetings. The targets are then reviewed, and new measures are considered in a PDCA cycle.
