The Advantest Group sets long-term goals for environmental challenges and defines relevant KPIs based on the ESG Initiatives Basic Policy (and the Advantest Group’s environmental policies), promoting responsible initiatives in order to address climate change and to help foster a decarbonized society.
Advantest has newly formed the Sustainable Management Promotion Working Group (WG) for FY2020. Run directly by the Executive Management Committee, this WG consists of the representing executive of each HQ and other members;
the WG serves as a governance system to achieve sustainable management in climate change initiatives, etc. With the assistance of this WG, we formulated the ESG Action Plan, incorporating the key policies and themes related to climate change from each department. After the ESG Action Plan is approved through the deliberations of the Executive Management Committee, each unit takes charge of implementing initiatives. These climate change initiatives are reported on to the Board of Directors for discussion and evaluation twice a year.
Reporting and Information Disclosure
The WG will report the implementation status of the ESG Action Plan to the Executive Management Committee and the Board of Directors twice a year. And the WG will also endeavor to disclose it to external stakeholders in a timely and appropriate manner through, for example, Integrated Annual Report.
