Value creation process

The Yazaki Group has harnessed strengths cultivated over more than eight decades under its Corporate Policy that calls for “A Corporation in Step with the World” and “A Corporation Needed by Society.” In doing so, we have developed a business of connecting cars, people’s lives, and society. By addressing priority issues for the promotion of sustainability through our “connecting” business and initiatives centered around this Corporate Policy, we will continue to provide new value to stakeholders and communities and contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.

Priority Issues for the Promotion of Sustainability

The Yazaki Group regards CSR as a management issue and believes it is important that it ascertains and manages the impact of the external environment on the company and the impact of its business activities on society in order to further promote initiatives concerning CSR. Accordingly, we have identified 23 items across six priority issue areas in terms of the promotion of sustainability that should be addressed on a priority basis.
In addition we have clarified connections between the priority issues and the SDGs in relation to achieving the SDGs.

We have decided to rename the report and publish it as the Sustainability Report from this fiscal year. This report provides information on the initiatives undertaken and results obtained over the past year by the Yazaki Group in line with priority sustainability issues, which were revised in fiscal year 2022 and affect our five key stakeholders—customers, local and global communities, the global environment, business partners, and employees—in accordance with our CSR Policy.
