Materiality Identification Process
As Social Beauty Innovators, I-ne Group has a strong determination to become a positive influence on society.
Specifically, in 2021, we identified "materiality (key issue)" areas to focus on based on the latest social trends and expectations of our stakeholders.
|With reference to GRI Standards, SASB (Sustainability Accounting Standards), and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), we identified social issues to consider.|
|Based on the identified social issues, we have organized hypotheses regarding the expectations and demands of our customers, business partners, investors, public administration, and NPO/NGOs towards the I-ne Group.|
|Based on the social contribution activities that the I-ne Group has engaged in so far and the brand MISSION upheld by our main brands, we have aligned the priorities of the I-ne Group with the priorities of our stakeholders.
While the I-ne Group recognizes that governance is certainly important for a listed company, it is not included in the Materiality. Instead, it is structured in the Environment and Social category.
|After discussions amongst the management committee, validation by the Sustainability Committee, and resolution by the Board of Directors, we have identified the materiality.|
Support for the UN Global Compact
In November 2022, the I-ne Group expressed its support for the Global Compact proposed by the United Nations.
We support the Global Compact's 10 principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption in our corporate activities.
About the UN Global Compact
The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is the world's largest sustainability initiative, bringing together the United Nations and private sector entities (companies and organizations) to foster a healthy global society.
By enlisting the commitment of their top executives, companies and organizations that sign the compact are required to endorse and commit to the ten principles related to the protection of human rights, the elimination of unfair labor practices, environmental responsibility, and anti-corruption measures.
