KPIs and Targets Related to Materiality

Steps Taken to Identify Materiality

From the perspective of sustainability, we identified social issues that are closely related to our company by referring to the SDGs, GRI standards, etc., and evaluated them based on two indices: importance to stakeholders and importance to the EIZO Group, and then identified materiality that EIZO should address.

STEP 1. Selecting the Issues

We selected social issues closely related to the EIZO Group's value chain as candidates for key issues by referring to our Principles of Conduct and international goals and guidelines, such as the SDGs and GRI Standards.

STEP 2. Analyzing the Issues

We evaluated and analyzed the selected social issues from the perspectives of the degree of impact on each stakeholder and degree of impact on the EIZO Group. The results of our analysis were finalized after receiving opinions from outside experts, as part of the stakeholder dialogue, to assess whether we had covered all items with regard to the Group's significant impact on the economy, environment, and people, and whether we had appropriately determined the level of importance.

STEP 3. Identifying Materiality

The results of the aforementioned analysis were mapped onto a graph to identify social issues important to both stakeholders and the EIZO Group as the Group's materiality.
Following deliberation by the Sustainability Committee, the Group's materiality was adopted by the Board of Directors in March 2022.
