Disclosure Policy

Our Sustainability website reports on our ESG policies, systems, and shares cases of our ongoing initiatives.

The "Sustainability Data Book 2022" is an annual report of information on our Sustainability Website as of the end of August 2022, published every year in PDF format. In this data book and our website, we report our approach and initiatives for E (environment), S (society), and G (governance) sustainability in our second mid-term management plan (2021 to 2023) as a tool for communicating with our stakeholders. The website will be updated from time to time after the end of August 2022.

We refer to the GRI standards along with other guidelines to offer a more comprehensive summary of our activities. Regarding climate changes, we are disclosing information in accordance with the "Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)" since FY2021.

Advantest positions our "Integrated Annual Report" as a "One-stop Handbook" for disclosing our corporate value from financial and non-financial perspectives.
