In hand with this, companies irrespective of industry are being called on to conduct management aimed at resolving social issues through their business and achieving sustainable growth together with society.
Against this backdrop, the SCSK Group evaluated a range of issues faced by society from a business perspective, seeking to achieve its management philosophy of “Create Our Future of Dreams,” and specified the issues that it views as particularly important and that it should prioritize taking action on to achieve growth together with society as material issues.
