Information Disclosure Policy

Basic Policy

As a company aiming to be a Social Value Innovator, NEC Corporation considers communication with stakeholders to be a critical initiative not only from the perspective of carrying out our corporate social responsibilities, but also as an opportunity for us to understand the fundamental issues that our customers and society face. Our commitment to moving forward with dialogue and co-creation with stakeholders is embedded in the concept of “Orchestrating” as stated in our Purpose, “Orchestrating a brighter world.”

We use our sustainability website and ESG Databook (PDF format) as communication tools for this purpose, disclosing sustainability initiatives and their results as viewed from an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) perspective. NEC’s Integrated Reports also present the essence of our ESG Databook, with a focus on “materiality,” as well as the essence of our securities reports, which disclose our financial activities.

Scope of This Report

In principle, the content relates to NEC Corporation in certain sections but also includes subsidiary companies and affiliates in other sections. “NEC” refers to NEC Corporation and its subsidiary companies, unless otherwise noted.

The report covers the consolidated fiscal years ended March 31, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, and data as of March 31 of each year, unless otherwise noted.

Disclosure Format

Sustainability Website and ESG Databook (PDF Format)

NEC regularly discloses the latest information on its sustainability activities via its sustainability website. Furthermore, it emphasizes detailed coverage of information to ensure conformance with international reporting initiatives such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), while addressing the needs of sustainability professionals such as ESG research institutions, the news media, universities, and NPOs/NGOs.

The ESG Databook (previously the Sustainability Report, English version) posted on the sustainability website is published each year in PDF format. Our sustainability initiatives have been compiled and published in the Sustainability Report since 2018. However, from 2023 onwards, the report has been renamed as the ESG Databook. The Databook presents our ESG targets, results and future plans and initiatives more clearly, and the content is easier to search through. The previous Sustainability Report was published in English in September 2022.

NEC Integrated Report

The NEC Integrated Report explains our management strategies, which are aimed at promoting the sustainable growth of NEC and society as a whole, from both financial and non-financial perspectives. NEC has published integrated Annual Reports containing both financial and nonfinancial information since fiscal 2014. In July 2018, NEC changed the name of the report to “Integrated Report” upon having defined its corporate materiality.
