CSR Promotion System
In fiscal 2004, the TOTO Group launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Committee chaired by the President, and since then, the Committee has been promoting CSR management. The CSR Committee, which holds meetings once a year, is comprised of three fields: Environment, Social and Governance. Subcommittees that make up each field establish company-wide plans for their areas of responsibility, and engage in activities that cross over different departments and are expanded to related departments and Group companies. For the purpose of accelerating these efforts, a new executive officer in charge of overseeing CSR promotion at TOTO's domestic and overseas companies has been established since fiscal 2014. Cooperation between each subcommittee and the supervising division is being bolstered with the aim of speeding up CSR management through the delegation of authority.
