Core CSR Themes

日本語English

The JAPEX Group places great importance on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in conducting our business.

Based on this concept, we have identified and are working on five core CSR themes "SHINE" and 12 challenges to meet the expectations and demands of our stakeholders and grow as a trusted global company.

Five Core Themes "SHINE"

After deciding on a policy to systematically promote CSR throughout the company in 2012, we established core CSR themes "SHINE" in 2014 while incorporating dialogues and opinions from various stakeholders.

The JAPEX Group Core CSR Themes "SHINE"

  1. [S] Stable and sustainable energy supply
  2. [H] HSE as our culture
  3. [I] Integrity and governance
  4. [N] Being a good Neighbor
  5. [E] The Employer of choice

Setting and Reviewing Each Challenge

Under SHINE, we have established each challenge for each of the five core themes and are working on them by setting action plans and targets in line with these challenges.

CSR Activities' Action Plans, Targets, and Achievements

Please refer to the following PDF files for the action plans and targets for the last two fiscal years.

Review Process of Each Challenge

We review each challenge as appropriate based on changes in society and its demands.

Most recently, in 2019, we reviewed the challenge in the following process to re-organize each challenge, including raising the importance of climate change response and governance.

  1. Evaluating present status and identifying challenges: Comprehensively identify CSR challenges while referring to the GRI Standards and other guidelines.
  2. Analyzing and evaluating the challenges: Set the priority of each challenge considering the business impact and the importance to stakeholders.
  3. Conducting internal survey: Conduct an internal survey to define the importance of each CSR challenge for management officers and managers.
  4. Reviewing the items of CSR disclosure: Identify new each challenge based on the results of the evaluation and survey.
