(*1) SDGs: Adopted at the United Nations summit in September 2015, requiring corporations = to contribute to SDGs through their core businesses. Toward 2030, it identifies global-scale priority issues to be addressed for sustainable development, and mobilizes global-scale initiatives around a series of common goals and targets. SDGs urge governments, corporations, and societies to work on a global scale to keep from going beyond the Earth's limitations, to end poverty, and allow every person to live in dignity with fair access to opportunity.

(*2) Risk Based Approach: Aims to improve the likelihood of achieving objectives and goals by identifying factors that may compromise or promote the achievement, clarifying these effects, and thinking about necessary measures.

(*3) LTIF: Lost Time Injury Frequency. The number of industrial accidents occurring per 1 million man-hours.
