CSR-related decision-making and responsibility
In the ROHM Group, the CSR Committee, comprised of all thedirectors and division heads with their respective rights, fulfills responsibilities for CSR themes that spans the entire Group, such as the environment, society, and governance, with ROHM's President as the Committee Chairman. The CSR Committee includes seven subcommittees that make decisions based on discussions about objectives, plans, and performance in each area. Resolutions determined by the CSR Committee are conveyed to ROHM's internal divisions and group affiliates through the seven subcommittees then executed accordingly. Each member of the seven subcommittees is appointed by the respective committee chairperson at the same time the annual implementation plan is established, after which they begin fulfilling their duties. The CSR Office acts as both an office for managing the CSR Committee and a liaison with outside auditing organizations for CSR-related topics.
