In April 2022, Nihon Kohden has newly established a Sustainability Promotion Team in the Corporate Strategy Division to further strengthen its sustainability promotion. The team focuses on promoting sustainability at Nihon Kohden in Japan and overseas by planning and operating the Sustainability Promotion Committee and Sustainability Promotion Meeting and providing sustainability education to employees.
To foster awareness of sustainability promotion among all employees, Nihon Kohden provides training on sustainability when employees join the Company. In FY2022, one training session for new employees and two training sessions for mid-career hires were held, with a total of 194 employees attending.
We also conduct e-learning education on sustainability to all executives and employees once a year in Japan. In FY2022, an educational video by outside director Hidemitsu Sasaya, a professor at Platform for Arts and Science, Chiba University of Commerce, was distributed to further promote understanding. In FY2022, 4,051 participants took the course through webinars and 497 participants with paper-based materials.
