To Share the Group's Common Philosophy and Values

In 2010, the Taisei Group rebuilt its structure of values and policies. All officers and employees of the Taisei Group share the Taisei Spirit, and carry out corporate activities based on the Group Action Guidelines and Individual Policies in the Overall Principles of Conduct, and the long-term vision and Medium-term Business Plan in the Overall Management Perspective. We will contribute to the sustainable development of society by offering new value to our stakeholders through solving social issues.

Revision of KPIs

In FY2011, we identified CSR issues and KPIs derived from both our Overall Management Perspective including our Medium-term Business Plan, and our Overall Principles of Conduct including our Group Action Guidelines and have been striving to improve them through a PDCA (plan-do-checkact) cycle.
In FY2016, we partially revised our KPIs in accordance with changes in the global social environment and in our business activities.
