Our 10 Material Issues for CSR Activities

Review of Material Issues for CSR Activities

The JX Nippon Mining & Metals Group recently undertook a review of the material issues for CSR activities to reflect changes in the business climate surrounding the Group and in the needs of society as it targets greater sustainability.
In the review process, we looked at various CSR issues and analyzed their materiality from a combination of two standpoints: external (stakeholders') expectations and relevance to the Group's business (materiality).
On this basis, we identified issues to be accorded top priority, and these material issues now guide the Group's CSR activities. Through ongoing communication with various stakeholders, we will aim to raise our corporate value.

Material Issues for CSR Activities: The Review Process

1.Determining social issues to be considered
After a comprehensive study of international guidelines (GRI Standards, ISO 26000, etc.), as well as global and domestic initiatives (EITI, ICMM, Responsible Business Alliance [RBA], the SDGs, Charter of Corporate Behavior, etc.), and trends among other companies in the industry, we identified 34 social issues to be considered.
2.Prioritizing from an external standpoint: Analyzing external (stakeholders') expectations
The 34 social issues identified in the first stage of the process were analyzed from the external standpoint of stakeholder expectations according to assessment weightings provided by ESG survey institutes and other factors. (Vertical axis in diagram below)
3.Prioritizing from the Group's standpoint: Determining relevance to the Group's business (materiality)
The relevance of each issue to the Group's business (materiality) was determined based primarily on cross-divisional workshops (or discussions), exchanges of views in CSR promotion manager meetings and officer training sessions, and employee surveys. (Horizontal axis in diagram below)
4.Identifying material issues for CSR activities
We conducted assessments that combined external (stakeholders') expectations with relevance to the Group's business (materiality) to identify issues of particularly high materiality, and selected these as the material issues for our CSR activities.
In identifying these material issues, deliberations took place in the CSR Committee, which is an advisory body to the president, and the choice of issues was approved by the Executive Meeting members including the president.
