Editorial Policy

The Yamaha Group began issuing an annual CSR Report to communicate its CSR vision and initiatives to the Group’s broad stakeholder base. Since we first published the report, we have worked to prioritize information that is of greater interest and crucial based on our ongoing communication with stakeholders. We have introduced a booklet report (digest edition) to present key points more concisely. We also publish detailed information (full report) on our website that includes the contents of the booklet report and various other data.
To enhance transparency and make the report as easy to understand as possible, in 2014, we reorganized it to reflect ISO 26000, which provides guidance for social responsibility. In preparing the report, we referenced ISO 26000 and “Environmental Reporting Guidelines (2012 Version)” of the Ministry of the Environment, Japan.
