CSR Management of the azbil Group

CSR Management of the azbil Group — Infrastructure to Support for Value Creation That Contributing “In Series” to a Sustainable Society

Making azbil Group philosophy “human-centered automation” the foundation for its business activities, the azbil Group works to fulfill its corporate social responsibility (CSR) by assisting in the continuous development of society. By actively putting people first as we contribute to the economy, environment, and society, we strive to substantialize the values that we hold in common with society, such as the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Approach to CSR Management

The azbil Group takes a broad view of the responsibilities that a company should fulfill toward stakeholders and society, and takes a twofold approach to CSR management across the entire Group, as explained in the diagram below.
First,there is what we call “basic CSR,” which involves fulfilling the azbil Group’s fundamental obligations as a member of society. This includes thorough compliance with laws and regulations; risk management and preventative measures in such fields as disaster mitigation,information security, product quality, product liability, and accounting; strengthening of risk management measures and internal controls; and improvement of workplace environments to ensure the welfare of the people who work in them. The azbil Group believes that there are no shortcuts to earning the trust of society, so our aim is to implement fair and honest management and to strengthen our corporate governance.
The second approach is what we term “proactive CSR,” which consists of contributions to society through our business operations, as well as employees’ voluntary participation in activity that benefits society, as an outgrowth of the culture and atmosphere of the company. By managing the company on the basis of the Group philosophy, the azbil Group proactively contributes to the development of a sustainable society.
