Major dialogues

  • Through meetings and various briefings, we received opinions from shareholders on a wide range of topics, including not only on business strategies and capital policy but also non-financial value such as ESG and human capital. We give feedback on the opinions we receive to management, directors and relevant coordination departments as necessary, and reflect relevant feedback in various initiatives. In formulating the new medium-term business plan, we referred to the feedback when reviewing our business portfolio and considering non-financial targets, and we worked to expand and improve the disclosure described below. Given the increasingly uncertain economic environment, we believe timely disclosure of information is important, and based on shareholders’ interests, we have disclosed the financial impact of market fluctuations and the status of real estate-related exposures at an early date. We will continue to reflect opinions from our shareholders in various initiatives.
