We prioritize issues to be addressed (materiality) in order to meet the expectations and demands of our stakeholders. By working to solve these critical issues, we strive to continuously contribute to society while increasing corporate value.
Process of identifying materiality (key issues)
Step 1: Identify materiality candidate topics
Medley has identified social issues that are closely related to our business activities and corporate culture, referencing international standards such as those published by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) published by the United Nations, as well as the opinions of our stakeholders.
Step 2: Assess topics from the perspective of Medley and its stakeholders
The candidate topics identified and classified in Step 1 are assessed from the perspectives of Medley and its stakeholders.
Each topic is assessed based on information published by investors, ESG rating agencies, the mass media, and others.
Step 3: Specify materiality
Social issues that have been identified and categorized in steps 1 and 2 are discussed by the Board of Directors and other internal panels, and key issues warranting priority action are specified from among those that are closely aligned with our management strategy.
Materiality (key issues)
Based on the process described above, Medley has specified the following materiality (key issues) that are directly related to our mission of “Creating the future of medical and healthcare”.
We will regularly update our materiality and our efforts related to them based on changes in our external business environment and discussions with our stakeholders.
