Corporate Governance

Pursuing Strategic CSR Practice

Many stakeholders support the business of the Lintec Group. To continue to meet these stakeholders' expectations and be trusted by them, all Lintec Group employees actively conduct CSR activities centered on the company motto, "Sincerity and Creativity," and in accordance with the "LINTEC WAY," which is an important value supporting the company motto, the Basic CSR Approaches, and the Lintec Group Compliance Guidelines.

To achieve the LINTEC INNOVATION PLAN 2019 (LIP-2019), the medium-term business plan that was started in April 2017 and has its final year in fiscal 2019, we need to enhance group management. Therefore, we are conducting CSR activities on a global basis. We are aware that CSR activities directly impact business and strive to implement CSR activities in our core business. The Lintec Group promotes its business and CSR activities based on international standards by participating in the United Nations Global Compact and referring to ISO 26000.

In addition, we identify materiality, set key performance indicators (KPIs)*, and implement PDCA cycles efficiently for strategic CSR activities.

  • * Key performance indicators (KPIs): KPIs are important indicators related to organizational strategies, and quantitatively measure progress toward targets.

CSR Promotion System

The CSR Management Office under the direct control of the president strives to foster high ethical standards, disseminate information on CSR, and support the initiatives of relevant committees. The committees, which are each led by a corporate officer and have a cross-organizational membership, lead initiatives with responsibility from the standpoint of management.

In addition, the SDGs Committee shared understanding on the correspondence relation between Materiality items and SDGs and determined the relevant current situation.

Legal Education for Top Management and Employees

To promote understanding of corporate legal affairs, Lintec provides directors and executive officers with a top-management training program. In fiscal 2018, we held two training sessions, one on laws and one on accounting.

In addition to this training for top management, we are incorporating legal training into rank-based training programs for newly appointed managers and newly appointed section chiefs. We also hold legal training sessions for mid-level employees in charge of sales.

In addition, Legal News is published six times a year to provide information related to legal affairs to employees of the Lintec Group. At the end of the fiscal year, an e-learning program is provided so that employees can review the contents. We will continue to make efforts to raise the level of understanding of corporate legal affairs.
