Reporting of Business and CSR Developments


In 2002, Akebono began to prepare and disclose an annual Environmental Report to increase public understanding of the Group's environmental policy and related activities as well as to report on the results of such activities. From 2005, the Company started reporting on its CSR activities in an Environmental & Social Report.

In 2009, we upgraded this publication to create the AKEBONO REPORT, a publication presenting multi-faceted information that goes beyond the typical operating results and financial statements included in a conventional annual report, with the aim of providing our stakeholders with a more effective communication tool.

The AKEBONO REPORT 2017, issued in August 2017, was compiled applying “integrated thinking,” a concept proposed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), while featuring actual examples of the Akebono Group's operations, discussions of the kind of growth it aims to achieve and an overview of how it will fulfill its commitment to delivering safety and peace of mind through brake products.

In addition, we have prepared both printed booklet and web editions (data book) of the AKEBONO REPORT 2016. In the printed booklet, we put greater emphasis on reader-friendliness. More-detailed treatments of topics presented in the printed booklet are posted on our website.

In preparing this edition, we referred to the Guiding Principles set forth by the IIRC as well as the Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (G4) and ISO 26000.
