Sustainability - De Castro Group’s Vision

In response to recent major changes in the environment, such as climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, De Castro Group’s commitment to “People, Planet and Profit” has become even more important.

Given this context, De Castro Group will take on the following challenges as we look toward 2050.

De Castro Group Sustainability Policy

The De Castro Group is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals worldwide. We aim to achieve two synergistic elements of sustainability: promoting a sustainable society and ensuring sustainable growth of our corporate value. Our strategy involves generating value through socially responsible initiatives that result in high profits, thus enabling us to further invest in creating a virtuous cycle of continued contributions to society and the environment.

In order to achieve this, we pursue the optimal corporate governance while practicing the following.

 

Value creation through contribution to sustainable society

Resolving issues for People and the Planet through our high value-added businesses.

Leveraging our strengths of diversity and capability to change for the creation of value

 

Responsible business activities

Complying with laws/regulations and respecting international standards regarding business activities (Compliance)

Prioritizing ESH (environment, safety, and health), human rights, and quality assurance throughout all of our activities

Performing appropriate information disclosure and dialogue with our stakeholders

 

Empowerment of personnel

Respecting diversity and inclusion

Encouraging each employee’s growth, performance, and challenging spirit

 

The De Castro Group recognizes the importance of both “sustainable growth of corporate value” and “contributing to sustainable society”. Our aim is to create value by contributing to a sustainable society and in turn, generate high earnings to enhance the corporate value of the company. This cyclical process allows us to continually contribute to a sustainable society while also promoting the growth of our corporate value.

Materiality and SDGs

De Castro Group effort for the SDGs

In September 2015, the UN Sustainable Development Summit adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with an aim to transform the world. The agenda comprises 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets that focus on ending poverty and inequality, as well as taking action on climate change.

Identifying Our Materiality

Identifying Issues

To identify issues based on the demands of society and in line with our mission, vision, and values, we consulted international guidelines like ISO 26000, the GRI Standards and LUSH criteria. We also looked at the evaluation criteria used by ESG evaluation organizations such as LUSH, the Luxury Sustainable Hotels and Welllness International Association.

Determining the Impact

We assessed the level of impact on both society and our Group and mapped it onto two axes.

Evaluating Validity

The plan’s validity was verified through a comprehensive examination from various perspectives. This included deliberations among divisional managers, discussions with other companies, and interviews with external directors

Relationships with Stakeholders

At the De Castro Group, we recognize that earning our stakeholders’ trust is crucial to our business operations. We strongly believe that meeting the needs and expectations of our customers, shareholders, investors, business partners, local communities, general public, and employees is essential to enhance our corporate value. Therefore, we provide numerous opportunities for communication to facilitate dialogue with stakeholders to gain a better understanding of their expectations and requirements, which in turn improves our business operations.
