Based on the IP axis strategy, the Bandai Namco Group will work together with fans to advance sustainable activities that focus on the social issues that the Group should address.
The Bandai Namco Group has identified its purpose as “Fun for All into the Future,” and we have specified five material issues that will need to be addressed by focused initiatives in order to achieve this purpose. On that basis, we are implementing sustainability activities.
The Bandai Namco Group has established the Group Sustainability Committee, which comprises the directors (excluding outside directors) of Bandai Namco Holdings and others. The committee is chaired by the President and Representative Director of Bandai Namco Holdings. In this way, the Group is advancing sustainability activities rapidly and in a manner that is integrated with operations. In addition, in accordance with the idea that the promotion of sustainability activities is an important initiative from the perspective of management strategy, the status of activities is periodically reported to the Company’s Board of Directors.
Moreover, we have established the Group Sustainability Subcommittee, which is a subordinate organization under the Group Sustainability Committee. The manager of the Group Sustainability Subcommittee is a director of Bandai Namco Holdings with related responsibilities (Chief Sustainability Officer), and the participants include the people in charge of sustainability at each business management company and at major affiliated business companies. The subcommittee’s activities include sharing the status of progress with initiatives that address material issues in each business, exchanging information, and discussing various issues. The specific measures formulated by the Group Sustainability Subcommittee are implemented after being discussed by the Group Sustainability Committee.
