Editorial Policy

The Yamaha Group is working to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society as part of the exercise of its corporate social responsibility.

The Yamaha Group publishes sustainability reports via its website to communicate this vision of promoting sustainability and its related initiatives to the Group’s broad stakeholder base.

In compiling these reports, we prioritize the disclosure of themes of interest and important issues pertaining to the Group based on the insight gained through communication with stakeholders. In addition, we have been disclosing a wealth of information in an easy-to-read format that reflects the core subjects of ISO 26000, a guidance on social responsibility.

Furthermore, this sustainability report (website) has been prepared in accordance with the Core option of the GRI Standards. Furthermore, we referenced the Environmental Reporting Guidelines (2018 Version) of the Ministry of the Environment, Japan.


In principle, sustainability reports cover Yamaha Group companies (Yamaha Corporation and its 57 consolidated subsidiaries in Japan and overseas). References to “Yamaha” in this report indicate the Yamaha Group. Certain sections of reports, however, require a more granular scope and thus have specific targets.

* The above period is referred to as fiscal 2020 in this report.
* Certain initiatives under way prior to March 2019 and information from April 2020 onward are also included in this report.
