Commitment to Protecting the EnvironmentSUSTAINABILITY FOR THE MEDIA DO GROUP

Basic Policy

The reduction of environmental impacts is a task of utmost importance. This task is crucial to advancing the MEDIA DO Group’s quest to become an entity that is still operating a century from now and to ensuring that we can pass on a sustainable global environment to future generations. The global society is thus increasingly advocating the pursuit of a low-carbon, circular society to limit climate change.

TA long-term approach toward activities to reduce environmental impacts is imperative to support sustainable development on a global scale. The MEDIA DO Group is not limiting its efforts to tracking the use of resources and energy in its business activities and taking steps to improve efficiency. We go further, contributing to the reduction of adverse impacts on the environment on an industrywide scale.

Reduction of Environmental Impacts

Technology-Power Reduction of Distribution Energy Use
The MEDIA DO Group itself has a relatively low dependency on natural capital, given the characteristics of its business. The publishing industry as a whole, however, impacts the environment through the consumption of paper, the use of energy for distribution, and the return and disposal of written works.

Given this situation, the goal of expanding the eBook distribution market, set forth in the Group’s medium-term management plan, has the potential to contribute to reduced distribution energy use for publications and the publishing industry. This strategy will also benefit the Group through direct contributions to corporate value achieved by increasing the recognition and use of eBooks. We are therefore maximizing our technological prowess to improve the convenience of eBooks and thereby develop and supply a sustainable infrastructure for the distribution of written works.

By contributing to the enrichment of society through efforts to reduce environmental impacts,the MEDIA DO Group will realize its vision of “More Content for More People!”
