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 2014 with the two new features described below.

  1. The 2014 edition reports on the process of identifying materiality (key issues) and incorporating them into CSR management.
  2. The 2014 edition reports on materiality (key issues)—Respect for Human Rights, Promotion of CSR Management in the Supply Chain and Environmental Management—as highlights of the year.

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.
The CSR Report 2014 is available only from our website, which offers PDF files that can be downloaded by selecting the digest and sections to examine.
