Process of determining the material issues
FamilyMart UNY Group has taken the opportunity of the integration to reconfirm the material issues for each of FamilyMart and UNY, the core group companies and determined the "material issues" for this group. When determining the material issues we made comprehensive judgments based on the following process.
Step 1Summarizing the expectations of society
We analyzed requests from local communities, opinions received from our stakeholders, in particular our customers, industry trends in domestic and overseas markets, international norms that this group has already declared its agreement with, the evaluation results from ESG evaluation institutions, etc. to summarize the matters that society expects from us.
Step 2Reconfirmation of the material issues
We reconfirmed the material issues of FamilyMart and UNY taking into account the expectations from society confirmed in Step 1, the Group Princip le, Code of Conduct, and Sustainability Policy, and the management strategy and medium-term management plan for realizing the vision of the company we are aiming for.
Step 3Determination of the material issues
We evaluated the material issues reconfirmed in Step 2 using the "importance in aspects of ESG (environment, society, and governance)" [vertical axis] and the "importance in FamilyMart UNY Group" [horizontal axis] taking into account expectations from society in order to determine the material issues that this group should give priority to tackling.
