Four Core Themes
MARUI GROUP has turned its attention to the concept of "inclusion" to facilitate its efforts for providing fulfilling lifestyles for all customers. Inclusion entails including and reaching out to all those who have previously been excluded.
MARUI GROUP has defined four core themes based on the perspective of inclusion that it believes will further it as a company providing fulfilling lifestyles for all customers.
- Core Theme 1
- Customer Diversity and Inclusion
We will seek to develop products, services, and stores that bring joy to all customers, regardless of their age, gender, or physical characteristics.
- Core Theme 2
- Workplace Inclusion
Based on MARUI GROUP's corporate philosophy of striving to "continue evolving to better aid our customers" and "equate the development of our people with the development of our company," we will provide all employees with venues through which they can excel.
- Core Theme 3
- Ecological Inclusion
We will develop eco-friendly businesses that are considerate of natural capital and propose ecologically sound lifestyles that are in harmony with nature and the environment.
- Core Theme 4
- Co-Creation Corporate Governance
We will develop management frameworks that include stakeholders in order to achieve harmony between the interests and the happiness of all stakeholders.
Process for Establishing Core Themes
Focusing our concept of co-creation management and the impact this approach will have on society, the environment, and natural capital, we examined the issues and opportunities this approach will create, based on which we defined four core themes for initiatives from the perspective of inclusion. In formulating these themes, we held meetings with ESG-minded investors, sustainability experts, nonprofit organizations, and other stakeholders in the greater society as well as with customers, business partners, and Group officers and employees. In addition, we referenced the ratings of ESG evaluation institutions; internal and external guidelines, such as those of the Global Reporting Initiative, ISO 26000, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, and the International Integrated Reporting Council; and the SDGs.
