Monex Group ESG Approach
Embracing our business principles and working toward raising corporate value sustainably, by addressing ESG issues related to our medium-to-long term business areas
Aiming to solve the Group's unique management and social issues, the "Monex Group Materiality Matrix" was formulated by aggregating the requests and opinions from its stakeholders. The matrix has the level of importance to the Group's stakeholders on the vertical axis and the level of importance regarding the impact on the Group's business performance on the horizontal axis.
The process for identifying the materiality matrix is described below.
- Each item was selected based on the needs of each of the Group's stakeholders (shareholders, employees, customers, business partners and suppliers, NGOs & industry Groups, and the government).
- The ESG Promotion Secretariat developed a draft matrix mapping the impact on the Group's business.
- Revised and finalized after discussion at the Board of Directors meeting
