The MinebeaMitsumi Group believes that the mission of a company is to contribute to the sustainable development of the global environment and of humanity, not only through strict adherence to laws and regulations, but also through fair and proper business management in accordance with business ethics. To achieve this mission, we have established the "Five Principles" as our company credo, and on the basis of this credo, we have formulated the MinebeaMitsumi Group Basic CSR Policy and the MinebeaMitsumi Group's CSR Implementation Principles to guide our CSR activities.

In April 2015, we revised the CSR Implementation Principles. Based on our commitment to creating beneficial value for society through our products, we added the principle of "Creation of social value through our products."

We also stress the importance and strive to fulfill the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, to which we announced participation in 2012.

Our stakeholders are defined as employees, customers, shareholders, local communities, and global society, which are affirmed in our company credo, the "Five Principles," as well as suppliers and the environment that supports our society. In carrying out CSR activities, the Group believes that it is essential to maintain communication with each stakeholder group and meet their expectations.

CSR Promotion Structure

As of January 26, 2017

The Minebea Group established its CSR Promotion Office in 2010 in order to better promote CSR activities on the basis of the Minebea Group Basic CSR Policy and the Minebea Group CSR Implementation Principles.

In April 2014, in order to bolster the CSR structure and encourage internal activities, the President and Chief Executive Officer was named the Chief CSR Officer and the Chief of Personnel and General Affairs Headquarters was named his assistant. At each work site, we appointed CSR Officers (head officer) and sub-staff in charge of CSR to promote CSR awareness and monitor the status of activities.

Going forward, we will further reinforce our CSR structure across the Group to promote CSR activities.

Analyzing the Status of CSR Activities

As of January 26, 2017

Minebea conducts its CSR activities based on the seven key themes proposed by international social responsibility standard ISO 26000—Organizational Governance, Human Rights, Labor Practices, the Environment, Fair Operating Practices, Consumer Issues, Community Involvement and Development—as well as Social Responsibility Awareness and Integration into Entire Organization. In relation to these themes, we confirm the status and importance of our activities, while identifying priority issues we need to tackle. In FY2013, we analyzed the status of activities at sites in Japan, and in FY2014, we expanded the analysis of CSR issues to overseas sites.

Through these analyses, we confirmed the need to systematically pursue CSR through collaboration between worldwide sites and the head office, as well as the need to share cutting-edge initiatives among all sites. Moving forward, we will expand our analysis of the current status of activities to Europe and the United States and promote PDCA management through communication with our CSR Officers.

Internal CSR Diffusion Activities

As of January 26, 2017

Since FY2012, we have been holding CSR study meetings among working-level coordinators in each division to discuss goals for our CSR promotion activities.

In FY2015, we held discussions and review meetings with CSR Officers in Europe, the United States, and China to confirm progress on initiatives at each site. Additionally, we promoted CSR awareness through articles in the biannual employee magazine.

Future Issues and Goals

As of January 26, 2017

As a global enterprise, the Minebea Group aims to promote CSR based on ISO 26000 and other international standards. We will strive to establish a Group-wide CSR strategy, inclusive of overseas sites, and promote management activities in order to instill CSR throughout the Group.
