Strengthening of Nissan Group's business base
Promotion of Diversity
At Nissan Chemical, it is important that the individuality and talents of each individual be demonstrated and that the purpose of the individual be connected to society through the Company. We believe that this will nurture a sense of fulfillment in work and a sense of purpose in life, and create a strong force that fulfills the future of people and society with hope and happiness as well as realizing the well-being of people who work.
We regard diversity initiatives as an important theme for achieving both the well-being of our workers and the happiness of society, and aim to achieve our Diversity Vision through all measures.
- We will become a vibrant company that is full of job satisfaction and fulfillment in life through a corporate culture that respects and accepts various opinions and ideas arising from all kinds of diversity(※), and creating the opportunities to demonstrate individual talents.

Support for the Development of the Next Generation and Promoting Active Participation of Women in the Workplace
In order for individuality and talents of each individual to be fully demonstrated toward the achievement of the Diversity Vision, we believe that a corporate culture that respects and accepts all kinds of diversity and the realization of work-life balance are indispensable.
With regard to the promotion of women, by setting the target of 30% or more for the ratio of females among new graduates in the regular position and by working to expand the job categories in each department within the company, the ratio of females in the regular position increased to 10% in April 2021.
Going forward, we will accelerate the penetration of diverse work styles according to individuality and life stage of each individual, with the new targets of increasing the ratio of females in the regular position to 13% or more, doubling the number of female managers, and encouraging male employees to take childcare leave.

Activities for Recruiting Foreign Nationalities
As one of the measures to develop globally competitive human resources and to promote the activities of diverse human resources, we are strengthening recruitment activities for foreign nationalities. We have been proactively working on this issue since 2017, and since then, foreign nationalities have joined the Company continuously. Moving forward, we will continue to promote diversification of our human resources through the continuous dispatch of information for foreign nationalities and create an organization that will allow diverse human resources to demonstrate their capabilities.

TOPICS : Creating Employment Opportunities of People with Disabilities on the Farm
In November 2020, we opened a company-owned "Yume Farm" using a rental farm. Through employing people with disabilities as staff on this farm, we will contribute to the financial independence of people with disabilities and deepen our employees' understanding of people with disabilities. We also aim to contribute to the local community by cultivating vegetables and fruits in cooperation with farm staff with disabilities and donating harvests to nearby welfare facilities.
