Transparent disclose of our continuous sustainability activities supported by a systematic operating system.

Sustainability Overview

In accordance with the demand and expectation from various stakeholders, HAMC is trying to evolve into a sustainable company fulfilling its economic, social, and environmental responsibilities. As part of these efforts, we have established a systematic sustainability management operating system, including a decision-making body in which the CEO and top management participates directly. Key issues in economic, social, and environmental aspects were derived in consideration of opinions of various stakeholders such as customers, employees, and suppliers, global sustainability management initiatives, and corporate management activities. Responses and performances for each issue are transparently disclosed through the Sustainability Report.

Philosophy & Principles

HAMC strives to carry out its economic, social, and environmental responsibilities by establishing a CSE (Creating Social Eco-system) that can solve social issues and enhance the sustainability of mankind through close cooperation between businesses and civil society.
