Disclosure of CSR Information

Approach to the Disclosure of CSR Information

KDDI publishes its Integrated Report as a means for disclosing financial and non-financial information. In addition to the normal Integrated Report, which focuses on financial information, KDDI publishes its Integrated Report (Detailed ESG Version), which expands on the non-financial information of the environment and social aspects 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. Furthermore, in order for KDDI's message to reach a wider range of stakeholders, KDDI releases its Highlights of 2016 in Japanese and English on its CSR website. We will continue fashioning ways to communicate with all stakeholders while promoting our CSR initiatives.

Period Covered

This report covers business activities for FY2015 (April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016). However, this report also contains descriptions of a few initiatives from before and after this period.

Scope of Report

Although the scope of this report covers the business activities of the 164 companies in KDDI and its Group, it focuses on KDDI only since the ratio of Group's consolidated sales is approximately 1.17 times of KDDI's unconsolidated sales.
