GRI Materiality Analysis
Shimizu performed an analysis of materiality based on GRI standards to extract key CSR topics. The analysis was performed from two perspectives: The impact on stakeholder evaluation and decision-making, and the degree of economic, environmental, and social impact the organization has.
Results of materiality analysis as follows:
The impact on stakeholder evaluation and decision-making on the vertical axis shows the impact on shareholders and investors, recruits, and customers. The degree of economic, environmental, and social impact the organization has on the horizontal axis shows the impact on employee motivation (corporate culture), economic aspects, and medium- to long-term risks.
At Shimizu, the initiatives on each key CSR topic are undertaken by the division in charge of each of the functions. The contents of the policies, goals, responsibilities, specific measures, and other information for each key CSR topic is provided at the respective link destinations in the Corporate Report and on the website (ESG Data and Disclosures（Reference for the GRI Standards）See the Management Approach of Material Topics ). These divisions also implement the activities aimed at achieving the specific numerical goals of the KPI (Key Performance Indicators) and other performance indicators for each respective topic.
