Corporate Citizenship Activity Promotion System

Nikon engages in corporate citizenship activities, pursuing sustainability through all Group companies. The Sustainability Committee is the entity that drives our sustainability promotion structure. The Sustainability Committee wrote the Nikon Corporate Citizenship Activities Policy to provide the principles we follow when conducting corporate citizenship activities, ensuring the Group acts in unison. We conduct the Nikon Group Corporate Citizenship Activities Survey annually to monitor whether activities are being carried out in accordance with this policy. We report the results to the Sustainability Committee.
