ISO26000 and SCSK Sustainability

ISO 26000 and SCSK Sustainability

In promoting SCSK’s Sustainability activities, SCSK carried out in FY2012, status analysis that referenced the ISO 26000*1 standard. This analysis enabled us to identify and respond to requirements needing attention and to make better use of our strengths. In FY2013, we are making preparations towards the formulation of Sustainability targets.

*1 ISO 26000 was developed by ISO, the world’s largest international standardization organization, to achieve sustainable development through a consensus process among diverse stakeholders. The standard includes comprehensive guidelines relating to social responsibility for all types of organizations.

Status Analysis Process

To assess the compliance of SCSK's current activities with the principles of social responsibility and core subjects set forth in the ISO 26000 standard, we carried out a review involving the relevant departments of the Company in collaboration with external specialists, and we will consider the future direction of our activities based on the issues and strengths identified through this process.
