Corporate Citizenship Activity Promotion System

The Nikon Group promotes the implementation of corporate citizenship activities by all Group companies through the Sustainability Promotion System, in which the Sustainability Committee plays a central role. Nikon Corporate Citizenship Policy, which was formulated by the Sustainability Committee, functions as a set of principles for the implementation of corporate citizenship activities to ensure that all companies within the Nikon Group adopt the same approach when undertaking these activities. To verify whether community contribution activities are being carried out in accordance with the Policy, monitoring is performed through an annual Nikon Group Corporate Citizenship Activities Survey; the survey results are reported to the Sustainability Committee.
