The Subaru Group is striving to realize a sustainable society by evolving “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind” in keeping with our value statement, taking actions to sustainably grow and achieve its vision of becoming a company delivering happiness to all. In order to deepen our stakeholders’ understanding of our strengths, business model, and sustainable activities, we have sought to disclose financial and non-financial information in an integrated fashion. To that end, as of the most recent fiscal year, we have revamped our disclosure style, replacing the existing Annual Report and CSR Report with Integrated Report 2021 and Sustainability Report 2021.*
These reports will serve as tools for us to communicate with our stakeholders as we further enhance our disclosure.
Content Highlights in Integrated Report 2021
The report presents the Subaru Group’s unchanging values, strengths, growth strategies, and more in an integrated fashion across three main sections: “Value Creation Story,” “Commentary on Strategy,” and “Mechanism Supporting Value Creation.”
In the “Value Creation Story” section, we provide a new look at Subaru’s journey through value creation since its founding, centered on the Value Creation Process. In the “Commentary on Strategy” section, we offer an analysis of our major initiatives and future directions in the STEP mid-term management vision and the Six Priority Areas for CSR.*
* The six areas of People-oriented Car Culture, Resonance and Coexistence, Peace of Mind, Diversity, Environment, and Compliance.
Value Creation Process
