CSR Promotion Structure/Materiality
Alpine evaluates CSR materiality, reflects issues that have been identified to our medium-term CSR plan and applies the PDCA cycle.
Alpine CSR activities are carried out under the direction of the CSR Committee, which is comprised of eight subcommittees. In order to ensure that our CSR activities reflect a global perspective, we continue to improve our management structure to maintain an environment that enables individual employees to exercise their abilities in accordance with Alpine CSR Guidelines established in reference to ISO26000 standards.
Since 2014, Alpine has strengthened its approaches to the creating shared value (CSV) project to increase its social and corporate values to promote more strategic CSR activities. In 2015, we defined the materiality of CSR and included it in our medium-term CSR plan while taking the expectations of society and our stakeholders into account.
Alpine has identified CSR materiality from 2015 for reflection to our CSR activities. To identify materiality issues, we conduct assessments from the standpoints of stakeholder interest and Alpine priorities with reference to ISO26000 and international standards for corporate social responsibility. We reflect opinions provided by the internal CSR Committee and submit assessments to review by external experts. While all CSR activities are important, we identified key topics to incorporate into the mediumterm CSR plan as key concerns, and we reinforce our CSR management to monitor the status of each issue through periodical review.
