At the HTS Group, we are all about treating people and nature with great respect. In this connection, our fundamental policy is to do our part to help create an affluent society through fair business practices, as we boost our value for all of our stakeholders.
Guided by our basic CSR policy, we work to make CSR initiatives part of our operations with an eye to creating a sustainable society.
After assessing and prioritizing social and environmental issues as well as public expectations in light of international standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, ISO 26000, UN Global Compact, and SDGs, we identified material issues in 2017. Once we have a good grasp of the social and environmental problems we face and what people expect us to do about them, we will work on implementing effective CSR initiatives aimed at solving those problems.
Looking at material issues, we specified CSR objectives to be addressed on a priority basis. In FY 2018 we will identify specific areas to focus on and key performance indicators (KPIs) as we forge ahead to create a foundation upon which we can implement a PDCA cycle.
We will focus on four objectives to drive innovation forward in supply chains with an eye to creating a sustainable society.
The HTS Group is committed to supporting supply chains, which are the foundation of society and industry, through our logistics and related businesses. Working to meet the wants and needs of people today, we will move forward to take the lead in enabling supply chains to solve various social and environmental problems with an eye to creating a sustainable society.
The HTS Group is fully aware of the importance of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs*), the universal goals the international community is aiming to reach by 2030. Among the 17 SDGs the following 8 are especially relevant to our CSR objectives. We will work with various stakeholders to do our part in achieving these SDGs as we move into high gear to reach our objectives.
*SDGs SDGs were unanimously adopted by 193 UN member nations at the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015. SDGs are essentially a universal call to action, involving both developing as well as developed countries, and a commitment to "leave no one behind."
We believe that strengthening our core competencies is crucial to implementing initiatives that will enable us to realize our CSR objectives. Our three core competencies, advanced technologies, personnel/organization/global network, and open innovation, are all interwoven with one another. Enhancing each core competency will create the synergy that will enable us to reach out four CSR objectives.
We will assess and improve CSR activities through information disclosure and dialog with stakeholders about our CSR objectives.
