- News Release
Tokyo, Japan—DIC Corporation announced today the publication of the complete and summary versions of DIC Report 2022, the latest edition of its annual integrated report, which provides vital information on the DIC Group’s businesses, financial performance and sustainability initiatives, among others, in an efficient and coherent form.
To introduce its global business activities and sustainability initiatives, DIC prepares DIC Report, an annual integrated report containing both financial and non-financial information, including operating results and management strategies. This year, the Company once again prepared two versions of the report: a detailed complete version containing extensive information and quantitative data and a summary version conveying key highlights in an easy-to-read manner.
As well as outlining the new DIC Vision 2030 long-term management plan, which launched in fiscal year 2022, DIC Report 2022 includes a special feature presenting DIC Group products that will help realize sustainable mobility, namely, functional black pigments and fast-curing carbon fiber–reinforced prepreg, as well as a section showcasing the Group’s work style reforms and its Work Style Reform 2020 (WSR 2020) project.
The DIC Group is working to provide both social value, which contributes to sustainability and markets, and economic value, which underpins corporate growth, with the aim of becoming a unique global company that is trusted by society. Looking ahead, the Group will continue to use a variety of channels to actively extend information to its many stakeholders, thereby encouraging greater awareness of its activities.
Having pledged to contribute through its business activities to the success of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development—the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—DIC used the official icons of the SDGs to identify pertinent DIC Group initiatives in DIC Report 2022. In preparing the report, DIC referenced ISO 26000, the International Organization for Standardization’s standard for social responsibility, released in 2010, as well as Japan’s Responsible Care Code and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)* GRI Standards, to ensure it provides the information sought by its diverse stakeholders.
* The GRI is an international nonprofit organization, the mission of which is to formulate international sustainability standards. In its role as an official collaborating center of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the organization developed the GRI Standards, which apply to sustainability reporting by a variety of entities.
