Through our business activities, we create various kinds of economic value, both directly and indirectly.
This value is distributed to a variety of shareholders, including shareholders, employees, etc., and has an extensive social impact. Reflecting this, key materiality aspects have been identified in the economic dimension, and Advantest is implementing measures based on these identified materiality aspects.
We are also committed to building collaborative relationships while maintaining good communication with our suppliers who support our business activities to achieve mutual growth.
