ROHM Group CSR Activities
Adhering to the Company Mission, Basic Management Policy, and other objectives and policies has allowed the ROHM Group to contribute to the sustainable growth of the Group and the healthy development of society by building a relationship of mutual trust with stakeholders.
The ROHM Group CSR Policy was established in order to apply CSR concepts to conduct business conscientiously from a global perspective and contribute to the sustainable progress of society based on these objectives and policies. Fundamental ethical rules for consistently implementing these objectives and policies are specified in the ROHM Group Business Conduct Guidelines.
Although the objectives and policies including the Company Mission and Basic Management Policy remain unchanged, the ROHM Group's CSR Policy and Business Conduct Guidelines continue to evolve in line with changing societal demands and the latest international norms, such as the UN Global Compact (UNGC), ISO 26000, and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct.

CSR and CSV Compromise the Core of Our Business Activities
Cycle for identifying CSR Priority Issues based on GRI-G4
The ROHM Group regularly creates opportunities for dialogue with stakeholders around the globe while pursuing business activities.
We considered the opinions, requests, interests, and concerns received through dialogue from all of our diverse stakeholders and have identified CSR Priority Issues in line with the ISO 26000 guidelines. The validity of the CSR Priority Issues are evaluated from the perspective of stakeholders in a variety of positions, including external experts and specialists.
To ensure objectivity regarding the progress of initiatives (Do) aimed at achieving objectives and plans (Plan), ROHM receives external audits from third party organizations (Check) and decides on the next objectives and plans (Act) while periodically carrying out reviews based on PDCA.
