Disclosure of CSR Information

Reporting System

KDDI issues its Integrated Report as a means for disclosing financial and non-financial information. For information on our business strategies and opportunities, please refer to the Integrated Report. In addition to the Integrated Report, this report is a focused summary of environmental, society, governance, and other non-financial information in PDF format (Japanese and English). The Integrated Report (Detailed ESG Version) expands on information referencing the report of the GRI's Sustainability Reporting Guidelines 4th Edition (G4), as well as information determined to contribute to promoting the understanding of the creating of KDDI's value. We will continue making efforts to communicate with all stakeholders and promoting our CSR initiatives.

Period Covered

FY2016 (April 01, 2016 to March 31, 2017). Some of the included information pertains to activities before and after FY2016.

Scope of Report

Although we report the activities of the KDDI Group (KDDI, its 165 subsidiaries), this report focuses on KDDI only since the ratio of Group's consolidated sales is approximately 1.23 times of KDDI's unconsolidated sales.
