Alpine Included in Morningstar Socially Responsible Investment Index
(MS-SRI)

In September 2007, Alpine has been selected for inclusion into the prestigious SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) list prepared by Morningstar Japan K.K., on the high evaluation of our sound environmental policies and rigorous in-house inspection system.

MS-SRI is an impartial evaluation of companies according to their corporate social responsibility (CSR). It is designed to help socially conscious investors, and evaluates companies as to their contributions and responsibilities to society, considering specific criteria such as the safety and quality of their products, as well as their business activities with regard to environmental concerns and adherence to laws. The top 150 socially responsible companies are selected from a group of 3,600 firms whose stock is listed on the open stock exchange.

Alpine is proud of its inclusion in this exclusive, prestigious list and we intend to maintain our status as a company that actively contributes to society and takes its social responsibilities seriously.
