Sustainability Promotion Framework

Promotion Framework

TS TECH established the Sustainability Committee as an advisory body to the Executive Committee, which is responsible for overseeing business operations. The Sustainability Committee discusses issues related to overall sustainability for the Group, including climate change measures, and manages these efforts group-wide. During the course of its deliberations, important risks are identified and then managed in collaboration with the Global Risk Management Committee, depending on the nature of the risks concerned.

Matters deliberated by these two committees are shared with the Executive Committee, which then makes a formal decision on which matters are to be submitted to the Board of Directors for discussion. We strive to achieve sustainable growth for the Group and solve social issues by making decisions on sustainability initiatives at the management level.
