To enhance the understanding of our philosophy among all of our stakeholders, we have integrated financial information, including management strategy and operating performance, with non-financial information related to the Group's environmental and social activities into the MHI Report (MHI Group Integrated Report). This ESG Report (ESG DATA BOOK) functions as a supplementary document to the MHI Report and summarizes information pertaining to environmental, social, and governance (ESG), meant to introduce detailed performance data of our ESG efforts to all of our stakeholders, who possess a vested interest in this information.
The MHI Report contains financial and non-financial information that is important to understanding MHI Group. The ESG DATA BOOK and the Company CSR website contain more detailed non-financial information.
Target organization: In principal, the scope of reporting includes MHI and its consolidated subsidiaries. The scope of some information is for MHI on a non-consolidated basis, in which case it is identified as such.
Target period: From April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018 (includes information on some activities after March 31, 2018)
To enhance the reliability of data, we have received third-party assurance.
