Identification and Review Process for Material Issues

Since ITOCHU Corporation first identified Material Issues in 2013, we have conducted regular reviews based on trends in the international community and the expectations of stakeholders. In FYE 2019, when the previous Medium-Term Management Plan kicked off, we identified seven new Material Issues based on the recent adoption of the SDGs, the Paris Agreement on climate change coming into effect and other social developments and changes affecting business and are following them in the current Medium-Term Management Plan "Brand-new Deal 2023".
