for the fifth consecutive year, Kuraray has been selected for inclusion in the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World.
The Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World are selected by Canadian publisher Corporate Knights from approximately 1,800 corporations worldwide.
The selection is based on an evaluation conducted by the American investment research firm, Innovest Strategic Value Advisors, in such areas as environmental, social, and corporate governance activities.
As early as 1970, Kuraray established a dedicated organization responsible for environmental and safety activities. In 1991, Kuraray established the philanthropy and environment committee. Guided by this committee, the company has implemented a raft of measures geared toward protecting the environment and commenced full-fledged activities that contribute to society.
In 2003, the committee was reorganized to form the CSR committee. This committee has a broad mandate, tackling the issues of corporate ethics, human rights, employment, and risk management.
Kuraray's selection as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World is recognition of the company's balanced environmental, social contribution and corporate governance activities during a lengthy period, as well as its commitment to sustainability.
Other companies, such as Eastman Kodak, Baxter International, and Glaxosmithkline PLC were selected from the dental/health-care industries.
