CSR Reporting Policy

Our effort to report on the priority issues for our stakeholders and those for Toshiba Group


In editing the CSR Report, we examine and take into consideration the issues material for both our stakeholders as well as the Group, then verify the results using a Toshiba-specific index for determining materiality. Based on this, we have edited this CSR Report 2013 with the two new features described below.

The 2013 edition reports on Toshiba Group’s business and CSR priority themes by classifying them according to social challenges and the core subjects of ISO 26000.

The Report includes outside directors’ opinions about management at Toshiba Group, including CSR initiatives.

Starting in FY2013, we made our website the major medium for our CSR reports; we strive to provide easy-to-understand information and update the same in a timely manner, mainly by offering links to related information and presenting videos showing activity highlights.
The CSR Report 2013 is available only from our website, which offers PDF files that can be downloaded by selecting the sections to examine.
