CSR Management System
At Konica Minolta, Inc., the executive officer responsible for CSR, who is appointed by the Board of Directors, carries out the duties and authorities concerning the entire Group's CSR activities. Directly reporting to the officer is the CSR promotion division, which sees to the implementation of CSR management for the entire Group. On a weekly basis, the division reports the progress of CSR activities to the executive officer in charge, while also reviewing measures and making proposals. Furthermore, the division consults the executive officers on important matters as appropriate.
In fiscal 2015, Konica Minolta established the CSR Executive Meeting, with executive officers as core members, to facilitate detailed discussion of CSR issues. At the same time, the company is improving measures and policies by reviewing each issue from a cross-sectional perspective. Since fiscal 2017, CSR activities have been implemented as an integral part of business management, and executive officers are now also being evaluated using non-financial performance indicators such as criteria related to the environment, society, and governance (ESG).
