Editorial Policy

The Yamaha Group is executing initiatives aimed at the realization of a sustainable society as its corporate social responsibility.

The Yamaha Group publishes a Sustainability Report on its website to communicate its vision to promote sustainability as well as its initiatives to the Group’s broad stakeholder base.

Since publishing the Environmental Report in 2000, we have worked to prioritize the disclosure of themes of interest and important issues of Group responsibility, based on our communication with stakeholders.

We have been disclosing a wealth of information in an easy-to-read format since 2014 to reflect ISO 26000, which provides guidance for social responsibility.

Furthermore, this Sustainability Report (website) has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards (2016 Version): Core option. In addition, we referenced the “Environmental Reporting Guidelines (2012 Version)” of the Ministry of the Environment, Japan.


In principle, the Yamaha Sustainability Report comprises Yamaha Group companies (Yamaha Corporation and its 59 consolidated subsidiaries in Japan and overseas). References to “Yamaha” in this report indicate the Yamaha Group. Certain sections of the report, however, which require a more granular scope, have specific targets.

* Certain initiatives underway prior to March 2017 and information from April 2018 onward are also included in this report.
