Priority Issues (Materiality) in ESG Management of the NST Group

NST organizes the stakeholder issues (NST business issues) that were identified based on the 17 goals and 169 targets of SDGs, which are considered to comprehensively represent global social issues, and based on the international frameworks for CSR and ESG (such as ISO26000 and GRI standards). We also organize the issues which need to be addressed by NST, and consider the strengths of the NST Group and the roles which it should play in the future. Based on these results, NST identifies social issues which are of particular importance and which the company should give priority to addressing.
A wide range of input regarding the identified important issues is obtained from within and outside the company, and the issues are discussed and approved by the Management Meeting and Board of Directors to decide materiality.
