Taiheiyo Cement Corporation’s CSR Report 2015, which was published in September 2015, has been honoured with an ‘Excellence prize for special recognition’ in the environmental reporting section at the 19th Environmental Communication Awards, sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment and the Global Environmental Forum, a not-for profit environmental organisation.
The Environmental Communications Awards were established in 1997 to promote efforts in corporate environmental management and environmental communication issues by acknowledging excellence in environmental reporting.
Taiheiyo Cement received the award in recognition of the description of its processes, along with the results and reviews which are in accordance wuth GRI G4 Guidelines. The setting of a new section, the so-called CSR dashboard, is effective in providing an outline of business operations as well as an integrated summary of the past and current trends in both financial and non-financial performance and the group’s medium-to-long-term objectives.
The award has encouraged Taiheiyo Cement to continue enhancing CSR reports and to reinforce its initiatives as it strives to create a recycling-based society.
