The sustainability section of Toppan’s website has also been redesigned and updated with the latest information in line with the report.

The Toppan Group is advancing a Medium Term Plan built around business portfolio transformation, as it aims to be a creator of value for society. Under the key concept of ‘digital and sustainable transformation,’ Toppan is working to enhance enterprise value and shape a sustainable society as a leader in providing solutions to social issues worldwide through digital transformation (DX) and sustainable transformation (SX).

Toppan has published its 2021 sustainability report to enable all stakeholders to further their understanding of the group’s activities and to enhance engagement. It provides a comprehensive view of sustainability activities, including initiatives focused on the sustainable development goals, approaches to climate change, and efforts to advance diversity and inclusion.

Highlights of this year’s report include a message from Toppan’s president to stakeholders, explaining the long-term vision for generating social value, consistent progress in implementing sustainability activities, and plans for the future.

Sections on sustainability activities and materiality present Toppan’s basic approach to sustainability, its positioning, and frameworks, as well the activities of the sustainability promotion committee, including materiality assessment and the process thereof.

Special reports cover new initiatives being advanced in specific fields as part of the challenge to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs through business, as well as work styles and systems that have been adopted within the Toppan Group to adapt to the new normal.

Featured topics are new products and services developed using Toppan’s expertise and technologies to combat the spread of Covid-19, and scenario analysis and risk/opportunity assessment based on support for the task force on climate-related financial disclosures. Activity reports, meanwhile, are presented based on a readily understandable ESG classification, a change from reports in previous years, which were organised in line with the seven core subjects of ISO 26000.

“We continue striving to improve our sustainability-related activities and to enhance transparency and quality of disclosure in step with the expectations and evolution of society,” said Fumie Ikeda, general manager of sustainability promotion at Toppan. “We believe this year’s report provides our stakeholders with a comprehensive and detailed view of where Toppan’s ESG activities are now and how we intend to advance them further moving forward.”
