Basic Policy on Sustainability

Basic Policy on Sustainability

JFE Systems established a specialized organization to promote diversity in fiscal 2016 to address DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) as a management challenge, and has been committed to advancing the employment of a range of personnel, establishing and improving work environments that promote sustained engagement, and cultivating female leaders.

Starting in fiscal 2021, JFE Systems is to establish its "Basic Policy for Diversity Promotion" to position diverse personnel in supervisory positions, including officers and department managers (core positions). Based on the phrase Know differences, Create values, the policy seeks to acknowledge differences in attributes, age, life stages, and individual character and to take advantage of a diversity of insight in business management to create new value and achieve sustainable growth.

As the goal for promoting women to supervisory positions, JFE Systems will seek to "raise the percentage of female officers and supervisors to 12% by fiscal 2030, and double the rate in fiscal 2021." To achieve this goal, JFE Systems will continue to steadily implement its Action Plan under the Act on the Promotion of Female Participation and Career Advancement in the Workplace, a five-year plan launched in fiscal 2021, and will work on the strategic placement and promotion of female employees to the posts of officer and supervisor, in the light of their career paths.

JFE Systems remains committed to mid-career and foreign personnel hires as part of efforts to achieve diversity.
