Sustainability policies and control

Basic ideas

As various issues related to the global environment such as global warming and abnormal weather, and various social issues such as human rights violations and poverty become apparent, the importance and urgency of efforts to realize a sustainable society are further increased.
We have established our basic philosophy "Ties of Reliability" and have been engaged in CSR activities aiming the coexistence and co-prosperity with society.
In order to clarify our stance of contributing to the global environment and social issues aggregated into the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) through our corporate activities, establishing ESG management base was set as a key medium-term measure.



Sustainability Policy

Tokai Carbon Group engages in corporate activities based on the corporate philosophy of "Ties of Reliability" with our stakeholders. Our management strategies are based on good consideration of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and work to solve social issues through our business, thereby contributing to a sustainable society as well as to the sustainable enhancement of corporate value.


In January, 2022, we established the Sustainability Committee, as an advisory body to the Board of Directors. It consists of the Executive Officer responsible for the General Affairs and Legal Affairs Department, the Executive Officer responsible for the Corporate Planning Department, the Executive Officer responsible for the Human Resources Department, the General Manager for the R&D Strategy Division, the General Manager for the Technology & Engineering Division, and General Managers of four major divisions, and is chaired by the President & CEO. In principle, it is to be held each quarter. In addition to discussing important matters concerning sustainability and referring or reporting them to the Board of Directors, the Committee shall also have the role of integrating disclosure of information related to sustainability, such as the preparation of the Integrated Report.

Important managerial Issues (Materiality) and Goals

In November 2019, as a first step to establish an ESG management base, we specified our “Materiality” that we should focus on.
In terms of specifying the materiality, we [1]identified the issues from the perspective of both Tokai Carbon Group and our stakeholders, [2]assessed each materiality, [3]discussed those at the CSR Committee which works under the management committee, referring to the opinions of external experts and [4]finally, it was decided by resolution of the Board of Directors.
Hereafter, in view of the changes in the external and internal environment, reverification of materiality shall be conducted annually. We will sincerely face each materiality, contribute to the realization of a sustainable society, and appropriately disclose the status of our efforts.
*Back in 2019, this was conducted by the CSR Committee. It has now been reorganized into the Sustainability Committee, which works under the Board of Directors.
