Sustainability Report

KDDI issues its Sustainability Report as a means for disclosing financial and nonfinancial information. This report is a focused summary of environmental , social , governance, and other non-financial information in PDF format (Japanese and English). For information on our business strategies and opportunities, please refer to the Integrated Report.

The Sustainability Report expands on information referencing the GRI's Sustainability Reporting Standards, as well as information to promote greater understanding of how KDDI creates value. We will continue making efforts to communicate with all stakeholders and promoting our sustainability initiatives.
