CSR (Social and Environmental) Report

We will contribute to the sustainable advancement of society by creating leading semiconductor solutions

Bunsei Kure
Representative Director, President & CEO

Our aim is to achieve sustainable growth by becoming a trusted partner of our customers around the world

 Our company started operating as Renesas Electronics in 2010. Due to various factors, however, including the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, which struck our main plant, and the persistent trend toward a high yen, we were unfortunately unable to produce results in line with our stakeholders' expectations for a certain period. However, we formulated a Reform Plan following our capital increase in September 2013, and execution of our reforms has begun to yield steady results, including achieving operating profit from FY2014 to FY2016.
 We consider it particularly crucial to further deepen our customers' trust in Renesas Electronics in order to return to the growth track and continue sustaining our development into the future. In order to win this deeper trust, Renesas Electronics has determined to reinforce and revitalize our human resources, as well as to focus our resources on our strategic segments and provide solutions that will increase value for our customers. By becoming trusted partners with our customers, we are confident that Renesas Electronics will also be able to generate stable profits and achieve sustainable growth.

We will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by creating leading semiconductor solutions

 In recent years, we have experienced global warming, localized heavy rainstorms, large droughts and other abnormal weather, together with issues on a global scale, such as problems of water resources and energy that have become matters of international concern. The expanding disparity between rich and poor, the problem of conflict minerals, problems of human rights and other such issues that can only be addressed by society as a whole, have grown to overwhelming magnitude. In order to resolve issues like these and welcome a future of prosperity, Renesas Electronics is committed to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by creating leading semiconductor solutions. We will do this by providing semiconductor products that take into careful consideration their impact on the global environment, from design through to disposal, so that our customers can use our products with a sense of security. We will also work to make semiconductor products that consume less power, and enable highly precise energy control functionality by means of our semiconductors, so as to contribute to the heightened energy-saving performance of our customers' equipment.
 We are also committed to continuing consideration of the problems of human rights, the environment and conflict minerals. Renesas Electronics has been endorsing and practicing the 10 Principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the four areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption since 2008. By complying with these 10 Principles and putting them into practice, we will act as a global enterprise to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.

Our work on developing and fostering human resources heightens their value and our corporate value as well

 Going forward, the key to returning to the growth track and heightening the corporate value of Renesas Electronics is developing and fostering human resources. As we see it, a vibrantly energetic workplace and employees who can work autonomously are also important components.
 In addition to continuing our efforts to foster human resources through employee education and other measures, Renesas Electronics introduced a new personnel evaluation system in 2014 for the purpose of raising employee motivation and promoting their ability to work autonomously. Moreover, we established “Organization Development Unit” in 2016, targeting a more efficient business operation and a highly flexible and integrated organization, on top of human resource development. Our aim for the future under this new evaluation system is to create a society and a workplace that enable every individual employee to work autonomously with a high degree of motivation and to display their creative abilities.

As good corporate citizens, we will work to increase our contributions to society with the aim of achieving harmonious coexistence with the local community

 Our goal at Renesas Electronics is to become a corporate citizen that is a familiar, friendly presence for the residents of the local communities in which we operate. It is important, therefore, that Renesas Electronics also accurately grasps the needs of the local community members and provides a solid response.
 The Renesas Electronics Group is engaging in social contribution programs in different regions throughout the world. Looking to the future, we aim to continue serving as a good corporate citizen, to listen to what the residents of local communities are saying, to become a company that is viewed warmly by local communities, and to coexist in harmony with them.
