CSR Action Policies for fiscal year 2018
The Alps and Alpine Groups have formulated our action policies as given below, by taking into consideration, analyzing, and summarizing the degree of importance for the groups, changes in external environments, and other factors. In addition to the overall policy, we have established separate policies for the environment, social, and governance (ESG) categories.
