CSR Framework and Themes
To guide its efforts to promote CSR as an integral part of its business activities, DIC formulates annual Groupwide CSR policies. In accordance with these policies, individual sales administrative divisions, product divisions, sites and domestic and overseas subsidiaries are charged with pursuing effective CSR programs by formulating their own CSR policies and ensuring such policies permeate their organizations and labor forces, as well as by linking their CSR policies to business targets and promoting meticulous policy administration.
As a framework for implementing its CSR program in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013,, DIC has developed 10 CSR themes and introduced a system whereby these are categorized as basic themes, including compliance and business continuity management (BCM); themes that demonstrate distinctive capabilities, such as business models focused on customer satisfaction and new technology development and value creation; and themes that combine elements of the previous two classifications, notably environment, safety and health (ESH) and quality and human resources management.

System for Promoting CSR
The DIC Group’s system for promoting CSR centers on the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, which answers directly to the president and CEO and is tasked with reporting on the status of CSR themes, as well as with proposing policies and programs for advancing CSR and deliberating matters related to CSR as a vital component of corporate management. (The Sun Chemical Group has an independent system for promoting CSR.)
