CSR Advisory Board 2014
ITOCHU Corporation management and outside stakeholders held a CSR Advisory Board meeting at the Tokyo Head Office on February 27 to discuss CSR issues.
The meeting was held under the theme of ”Business and Human Rights: Engaging with Local Communities” amid a backdrop of business diversification and enlargement having a greater impact on local communities and the overall value chain.
Active discussion occurred, with shareholders and leading specialists from various NGOs and academic fields giving frank opinions of their concerns and expectations, such as, ”We would like ITOCHU to develop a greater self-awareness as a global corporate leader. It should be more actively rather than passively involved in local community issues and strive for a corporate image of growing together with communities.”
The opinions and input that the advisors provided will be reflected in future CSR promotion efforts and, through dissemination of information, lead to enhancing understanding among stakeholders about ITOCHU’s business activities.
