Our CSV Commitment

The Company’s CSV Commitment is our medium- to long-term action plan for each business unit, intended to realize our CSV Purpose, a set of long-term, non-financial goals included in our long-term management vision, the Kirin Group Vision 2027. To that end, we are aimed at reaching the non-financial targets put forth in the Kirin Group 2019 Medium-Term Business Plan, spanning from 2019 to 2021. Linking these targets to our business strategy will serve to generate social value as an entire Group while enhancing our level of CSV management, which in turn leads to economic value in the form of greater competitive strength and business growth.
