CSR Activity Promotion Structure

 CSR activity of the Alps Electric Group is carried out proactively by individual departments. The Corporate Planning Office is responsible for summarizing the results of departmental activities and outstanding themes and reporting every quarter to the Board of Directors.

 The Alps Electric Group advances CSR activity according to mid-term plans established every three years. The 4th CSR Mid-Term Plan (FY2016 – 2018) is currently in effect and departments involved in activities addressing CSR issues are advancing initiatives toward achieving individual mid-term targets.

Overview ・Results of third-party ESG evaluations were shared internally. Third-party evaluations were
 examined and a start was made on reviewing measures and preparing to disclose
 information to gain a better evaluation score.

 related personnel.

 utilization of resources in design and manufacturing (material yield, material straight pass

 of total waste emissions.

 preparing risk maps. However, reorganization of crisis management manuals remained
