Basic Approach to CSR and Value Creation Process

Basic Approach to CSR

The Pioneer Group’s ultimate CSR commitment focuses on realizing a sustainable society and enhancing corporate value through activities that are linked to our vision and medium-term management plan and are based on our Group Philosophy and Corporate Creed. To achieve that, we engage in CSR initiatives in both our corporate and business activities.
( See Value Creation Process. )

In our corporate activities, we are committed to fulfilling our social responsibility in terms of seven themes: Group-wide organizational governance, human rights, labor practices, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, and community involvement and development.

In our business activities, we aim to accomplish our goal of creating shared value (CSV) through the provision of products and services by contributing to the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations with a view to resolving social issues and the new Society 5.0 social approach advocated by the Japanese government.
