Participation in External Initiatives
United Nations Global Compact
To enhance our CSR activities, we became a participant in the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in April 2018. UNGC is a voluntary initiative in which corporates and collectives act as good members of the society and participate in the creation of a global framework for achieving sustainable growth by demonstrating responsibility and creative leadership. We support 10 principles advocated by UNGC in four fields in human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and will continue to make efforts to realize them, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of society.

Recommendations of Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
TCFD is a private-sector task force established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) whose recommendations call for financial institutions, corporates and governments to disclose the impacts of climate-related business risks and opportunities on finance in their financial reports.
We announced support for TCFD Recommendations in 2020.
Responsible Care Global Charter
Responsible Care (RC) activities aim to secure environment, health and safety performance on voluntary basis throughout the entire process, from the development of chemical substances to manufacture, distribution, use, final consumption and disposal / recycling. These activities also serve as a form of communication with society through the announcement of their results.
We have demonstrated that we are enhancing our efforts in RC activities through international cooperation by agreeing to and signing the Responsible Care Global Charter, which was revised in 2014, established by the International Council of Chemical Association, an organization that addresses issues shared by the global chemical industry.
Japan Chemical Industry Association Responsible Care Committee (Japan Responsible Care Council)
Japan Responsible Care Council※ (JRCC) was established by the Japan Chemical Industry Association in 1995. We are one of the original members of JRCC.
- Became part of the Japan Chemical Industry Association in April 2012 to become the Responsible Care Committee, one of the association's business committees.
Japan Business and Biodiversity Partnership
At Nissan Chemical, we are fully aware of the fact that biodiversity serves as an important foundation for sustainable society in the future. As a member of international society, we intend to promote activities that contribute to biodiversity conservation by sharing roles and responsibilities with all the people and working together with them.
As part of this, in October 2015 we participated in the Japan Business and Biodiversity Partnership, a program designed to promote participation by the private sector related implementation of Convention on Biological Diversity which includes biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of biological resources.
