CSR Promotion

Companywide CSR activities in each department

JTEKT considers CSR activities to be true corporate activities and has each department prepare an annual CSR implementation plan. In addition, we rotate a PDCA cycle (*1) in accordance with monthly management based on policy management. Through mechanisms such as this aimed at achieving goals, we are applying our company policies and business/function policies into concrete initiatives and steadily promoting CSR activities. ※1 PDCA cycle PDCA is a management tool for continuously improving work by repeating a Plan-Do-Check-Action cycle.

Specialized working groups

Specialized working groups are established to create and promote activity plans for compliance, trade control, confidential information control, and social contribution, all of which are important themes.

Start of discussion to improve corporate value

JTEKT has regularly inspected the progress of its CSR activities in the CSR Promotion Committee chaired by President that was formed in February 2009. Meanwhile, in recent years, society has begun placing particular emphasis on sustainable value creation by companies and stakeholders’ interest in this area is growing year after year. For JTEKT as well, the extent to which we can improve corporate value through our CSR activities is a major factor in our ability to fulfill our Corporate Philosophy of “Seek to contribute to the happiness of people and the abundance of society through product manufacturing”. For this reason, in March 2017, the name of “CSR Promotion Committee” was changed to “Council for Enhancement of Corporate Value” and the committee began to go beyond the conventional scope of CSR activities by opening discussions about practical implementation models aimed at value creation (Management Model and Engagement Model).

Establishment of the Council of Public Disclosure

JTEKT conducts appropriate information disclosure in accordance with laws and regulations. In August 2016, the Council of Public Disclosure was established, comprising of concerned directors and managers of JTEKT’s Corporate Headquarters. This Council confirms the facts of information necessary for the realization of corporate governance and proactively discloses this through a timely and appropriate route. In addition to this information, JTEKT also discloses ESG (*2) information in JTEKT Report, our integrated report, in order to increase the transparency of our corporate activities and strengthen our foundation as a company trusted by society. ※2 ESG The first letters of “Environment”, “Social” and “Governance”.
