“Creating good cheer and fun in daily life to realize healthy, rich lives for the Japanese people.” This is the Corporate Philosophy of the SUNDRUG Group. It is the driving force that has allowed each employee of our Group companies to continue helping society through our business.
Achieving social stability and sustainable development by solving environmental and social issues is a must if we are to realize this Corporate Philosophy. The Group supports the promotion of sustainable development goals (SDGs) and believes in the importance of actively working on ESG to contribute to these goals and fulfilling the role expected of us as a social entity by all of our stakeholders.
In addition, we have set forth our business stance of seeking three-way benefit to complement our Corporate Philosophy. To think out transactions and methods that mutually benefit our stakeholders, including customers, employees, shareholders, business partners, communities, society, and the global environment and make the best decisions, we are working to raise awareness at various levels, from top management down to employees.
We have established an ESG Promotion Committee chaired by the President for the purpose of planning and promoting group-wide ESG management. The committee regularly reviews material issues under the direction and approval of the Board of Directors and is in charge of summarizing and reviewing progress on initiatives to solve material issues. It also reports to the Board of Directors on the results. By including an ESG promotion system within our corporate governance structure, we will further improve the effectiveness of corporate governance.
The Group will play an active role in promoting ESG by having each member of management and each employee fulfill their potential. We will actively engage in meaningful activities to solve social issues and improve corporate value, thereby meeting the expectations of our stakeholders.

In light of the importance to corporate management of value co-creation not only with shareholders but also with many diverse stakeholders, including employees, suppliers, customers, creditors, and local communities, SUNDRUG will strive for appropriate cooperation with our multiple stakeholders. As such, we believe that the appropriate distribution to those multiple stakeholders of the profits and outcomes generated by value co-creation and productivity improvements will help maintain the momentum for wage rises and the sustained development of the economy. From this perspective, we will promote the following initiatives based on the importance of returns to employees and consideration of trading partners.
