Identifying Material Issues

Reviewed based on our future vision Sustainable Vision 2030

In recent years, the expectations placed on companies, in terms of becoming carbon-neutral and contributing towards the realization of a circular economy, have grown. Enterprises need to address a wide range of issues, such as human rights, working conditions, and the impact of climate change.

In fiscal 2021, Toyobo group identified material issues in response to the demands and expectations of our stakeholders, and to realize our Vision of being a “group that will continue to creates the solutions needed by people and the earth.” In fiscal 2022, we reviewed them based on our future vision, Sustainable Vision 2030.
