Editorial Policy

 The Yamada Denki Group has issued CSR Reports to disclose information concerning its social responsibility and has continuously fulfilled its accountability, while promoting mutual communication with stakeholders.

 In line with the trend in European countries to adopt integrated reporting (integrating financial and nonfinancial information), we have published the Yamada Denki Group Corporate Report, which also contains the content of conventional CSR Reports, since 2016 as a comprehensive communication tool integrating company financial and non-financial information, while referring to the International Integrated Reporting Framework publicized by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). From the 2018 version, the report is published as the Yamada Denki Group Integrated Report by further expanding the content so that investors and other stakeholders can better understand our corporate value as a group.

 The CSR activities especially attracting stakeholders' attention, such as those relating to ESG, are introduced in this report and are also available on our website. We are committed to achieving our corporate philosophy through business activities and contributing to the creation of a sustainable society.
